7:030 Student Assignment and Intra-District Transfer
The School District is divided into school attendance areas. The Superintendent or designee will:
- Review the boundary lines annually and recommend any to the School Board; or
- Create new attendance areas using a lens that considers preventing segregation and the elimination of separating students in the District’s schools because of color, race, or nationality.
The Superintendent or designee shall maintain a map of the District showing current school attendance areas. All records pertaining to the creation, alteration, or revision of attendance units are open to the public. Students living in a given school attendance area will be assigned to that school. Homeless children shall be assigned according to Board policy 6:140, Education of Homeless Children.
Transfers Within the District
A student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) may request a transfer for their child to a District school other than the one assigned. A request should be directed to the Superintendent, who, at his or her sole discretion, may grant the request when the parent(s)/guardian(s) demonstrate that the student could be better accommodated by the educational program at another school, provided space is available. If a request is granted, the parent/guardian shall be responsible for transportation. The provisions in this section have no applicability to transfers pursuant to the Unsafe School Choice Option in Board policy 4:170, Safety.
The Superintendent or designee shall assign students to classes.
