In accordance with law, no student currently residing within a school's attendance area shall be displaced by another student transferring from outside the attendance area.
(cf. 5116 - School Attendance Boundaries)
Schools receiving requests for admission shall give priority for attendance to siblings of children already in attendance in that school.
A student may be subject to displacement due to excessive enrollment.
