7.30 - Student Assignment & Intra-District Transfers

The School District is divided into school attendance areas. The Superintendent will review the boundary lines annually and recommend any changes to the School Board. The Superintendent or designee shall maintain a map of the District showing current school attendance areas. 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 the student be transferred to a District school other than the one to which the student was assigned. The Board may grant an exception when the parent(s)/guardian(s) demonstrate that the student could be better accommodated by the education program at another school, provided space is available. Students who are granted a transfer within the District shall be responsible for their own transportation. The provisions in this section have no applicability to transfers mandated by (1) Title 1 and covered in Board Policy 6:15, School Accountability, or (2) the Unsafe School Choice Option covered in Board Policy 4:170, Safety.
 
Any student finishing one or more years at one of the District High Schools and whose parent(s)/guardian(s) change residence to a neighborhood served by another high school in the District may elect to continue his or her education at the former high school until graduation.
 
All parent(s)/guardian(s) electing to continue their son or daughter in a high school not serving their residence shall be responsible for transportation of the student to and from school.
