Interdistrict Attendance   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Following the principle that the financial and educational responsibility for a student's education rests primarily with the school district of legal residence, it is the policy of the Board of Trustees that students should attend school in the district of legal residence.

(cf. 5116.1 - Intradistrict Open Enrollment)

(cf. 5117.1 - Interdistrict Attendance Agreements)

(cf. 5145.6 - Parental Notifications)

The Board discourages transfers into the District and will consider approving such transfers only on a case-by-case basis through an interdistrict attendance agreement. Students residing outside the District who are discovered to be attending district schools without an authorized interdistrict attendance agreement will be disenrolled barring extenuating circumstances.

Interdistrict agreements for special education students are subject to procedures outlined in the San Mateo County Special Education Local Plan (SELPA), Regulation Section IV, F-1 and F-2 (Exhibit Y).
