J.01 School Attendance Areas - April 2001 Revision
The administration is to regularly evaluate the viability of schools and school clusters in light of population dynamics, facility adequacy, and site capacity.
Current demographic information will be maintained for the District and for each school. Information about the adequacy of school sites, location, access, surrounding development, and transportation requirements will be updated annually. Proposed changes in attendance areas are submitted to the Board by the Superintendent.
It is the policy of the Board to minimize the movement of students between schools when a boundary change occurs. The Board will weigh movement of students when boundary changes must be made in order to balance school enrollments. After a boundary change has been implemented, additional changes in the affected attendance area will not be made for at lease three years unless there is a substantial increase or decrease in the student population or unless other circumstances arise which adversely affect the attendance area or nearby attendance areas.
Procedural Directive Cross Ref.:
- Enrollment Priorities for Students Outside Attendance Boundaries
- Enrollment of Students Affected by Boundary Changes
