arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Superintendent or designee shall periodically review school attendance boundaries, taking into account school capacities and enrollment data, geographic features, student safety and transportation, racial and ethnic balance, educational programs such as magnet schools, and community input and shall make recommendations to the Governing Board for boundary adjustments.

The Board shall establish school attendance boundaries in order to maximize the efficient use of district facilities and effective administration of district schools.

(cf. 5116.1- Intradistrict Open Enrollment)

The Superintendent or designee may place some students in a school outside of their attendance area in order to alleviate overcrowding.
