Policy 502.07

Attendance Center Assignment

The board shall have complete discretion to determine the boundaries for each attendance center, to assign students to the attendance centers, and to assign students to the classrooms within the attendance center.

It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent to make recommendations to the board regarding the division of students among attendance centers. In making the recommendations, the superintendent shall consider the geographical layout of the school district, housing growth patterns, the condition and location of the school district facilities, the location of student population, possible transportation difficulties, financial condition of the school district and other factors deemed relevant by the superintendent or the board.

When boundary changes are adopted by the Board, the Superintendent shall have the authority and discretion to implement a boundary transition plan for students who will be assigned to a new attendance center.  The boundary transition plan shall be communicated in a timely manner to parents whose children will be impacted by the boundary change.

The board reserves the right to deviate from attendance center assignments on an individual student basis, when it is determined to be in the best educational interest of the student.

Open Enrollment application requests for intra-district transfer to a school outside of the student’s assigned attendance area should be submitted to the board on or before March 15 prior to the semester in which intra-district transfer is sought. On or before April 5, a notice will be sent to the parent or guardian stating the school building the student will be able to attend in the following school year.
