Interdistrict Attendance   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees recognizes that students who reside in one district may choose to attend school in another district and that such choices are made for a variety of reasons.

The Board desires to communicate with parent/guardian and students regarding the educational programs and services that are available in the district.

Interdistrict Attendance Agreements

The Superintendent or designee may approve interdistrict attendance agreements with other districts on a case-by-case basis to meet individual student needs.

The interdistrict attendance agreement shall be granted for one school year and shall stipulate the terms and conditions under which interdistrict attendance shall be permitted or denied. (Education Code 46600)

The Superintendent or designee may deny applications for interdistrict transfers because of overcrowding within district schools or limited district resources. The Superintendent's decision is final.
