Agenda Item #49


Title
Policy Revisions for Out of Area Students

Discussion

During the process of changing attendance boundaries for the 2010-11 school year, the large number of students attending schools out of their home attendance boundary, commonly referred to as Out of Area (OOA) students, became an issue of concern to both parents and the School Board. 

 

At the School Board meeting on 2/23/10, the Board requested staff to review the process for approval of OOA students, including McKay Scholarship students. 

 

In response to this request, revisions are recommended to Policy 5120 - Assignment within District and Policy 7120 - Criteria for Balancing School Membership to Capacity. 

 

Note:  The proposed revisions have been reviewed and approved by the Area Superintendents, the Assistant Superintendent for Student Services and the Director of School Choice.
