The Board of Trustees shall regularly 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.

(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. If available, transportation may be provided for such students.
