Coast USD | BP 5117 Students
The Board of Education recognizes that students who reside in one district may choose to attend school in another district and that such choices are made for a variety of reasons.
(cf. 0520.3 - Title I Program Improvement Districts)
(cf. 5111.12 - Residency Based on Parent/Guardian Employment)
(cf. 5116.1 - Intradistrict Open Enrollment)
Upon request by students' parents/guardians, the Superintendent or designee may approve interdistrict attendance permits with other districts on a case-by-case basis to meet individual student needs.
The interdistrict attendance permit shall not exceed a term of five years and shall stipulate the terms and conditions under which interdistrict attendance shall be permitted or denied. (Education Code 46600)
The Superintendent or designee may deny interdistrict attendance permits because of overcrowding within district schools or limited district resources.
The district shall not provide transportation outside any school attendance area. However, upon request, the Superintendent or designee may authorize transportation for students living outside an attendance area to and from designated bus stops within the attendance area if space is available. Priority for such transportation shall be based on demonstrated financial need.
Limits on Student Transfers out of the District to a School District of Choice
The Superintendent or designee may limit the number of student transfers out of the district to a school district of choice based on the percentages of average daily attendance specified in Education Code 48307.
In addition, transfers out of the district may be limited during a fiscal year when the County Superintendent of Schools has given the district a negative budget certification or when the County Superintendent has determined that the district will not meet the state's standards and criteria for fiscal stability in the subsequent fiscal year exclusively as a result of student transfers from this district to a school district of choice. (Education Code 48307)
(cf. 3100 - Budget)
(cf. 3460 - Financial Reports and Accountability)
The district may deny a transfer of a student out of the district to a school district of choice if the Board determines that the transfer would negatively impact a court-ordered or voluntary desegregation plan of the district. (Education Code 48301)
