School Attendance Areas - Comprehensive High Schools   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board desires to maintain three comprehensive high schools serving the Tamalpais, Drake, and Redwood K-8 attendance area communities.

To attend any of the District's three comprehensive high schools, absent an interdistrict transfer, a student's parent/guardian must be a legal resident of the school District.

Students shall enroll in and attend their school of residence in their attendance area unless otherwise authorized by Board policy.

Students who move their primary residence to the attendance area of a District school other than the school they currently attend (within the District boundaries) may remain at their current school of attendance through graduation. Such students must notify their school of attendance of their new residence address.

(cf. 5116.1 - Intradistrict Attendance-Compelling Need)

(cf. 5116.2 - Intradistrict Attendance-Open Enrollment)
