arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Children are entitled to enroll in the District in which they reside and, in fact, are obligated to do so by the compulsory attendance laws. All school-age children are permitted to attend school.

A permanent and fixed dwelling is not necessary to establish residency for school purposes.

The Board of Education believes that all children should have the opportunity to receive educational services. All children residing within the District shall have access to District schools. Immigrant children shall not be denied admission on the basis of citizenship or legal resident status. Children of the homeless shall be admitted with or without a permanent address, preferably to a school which offers a food program. Staff shall encourage parents/guardians to enroll all school-age children in school.

The Superintendent or designee shall maintain procedures that provide for the verification of all entrance requirements specified in law and Board of Education policy.

1. Certificate of birth.

2. Baptismal certificate.

3. Passport.

4. Immigration certificate.

If the above documentation is unobtainable, the District shall accept a sworn statement from the parent/guardian that provides the name, age, birth date and birth place of the student, the name(s) of his or her parents/guardians and the basis of such knowledge. (Health and Safety Code 10520)
