Intradistrict Open Enrollment
The Board of Education desires to provide enrollment options that meet the diverse needs and interests of district students. The Superintendent or designee shall establish procedures for the selection and transfer of students among district schools in accordance with law, Board policy, and administrative regulations.
The Superintendent or designee shall determine annually the capacity of each district school. This determination of schoolsite capacity shall be based on nonarbitrary data-driven factors relating to pupil enrollment and available school site space. In order to maintain comprehensive instructional programs at all schools, the number of students allowed to transfer into or out of an individual school during open enrollment may be limited, and the Superintendent or designee will take into account this and related educational prerogatives when making annual schoolsite capacity determinations. The Superintendent or designee shall also determine annually establish a random, unbiased selection process for the admission of students from outside a school's attendance area into schools with space to allow for transfer students. The parents/ guardians of any student who resides within district boundaries may apply to enroll their child in any district school with available space, regardless of the parents' location of residence within the district.
When any Title I school is identified for Year One Program Improvement (20 U.S.C ¬ß 6316), the Superintendent or designee shall provide students enrolled in the Program Improvement school the option of transferring to another district school or charter school that has not been identified for program improvement.
The Board shall annually review this policy.
