5120 - ASSIGNMENT WITHIN DISTRICT
The Board of Education directs that the assignment of students to schools within this District be consistent with the best interests of students and the best use of the resources of this District.
The Board shall determine periodically the school attendance areas of the District and shall expect the students within each area to attend the school so designated.
The Superintendent shall periodically review existing attendance areas and recommend to the Board such changes as may be justified by:
|A.||the effectiveness of the instructional program;|
|B.||financial and administrative efficiency;|
|C.||a wholesome and educationally sound balance of student populations;|
|D.||considerations of safe student transportation and travel.|
No assignment to schools or attendance schedules shall discriminate against students on the basis of gender, race, religion, disability, or national origin.
The Superintendent may assign a student to a school other than that designated by the attendance area when such exception is justified by circumstances and is in the best interest of the student. Every effort shall be made to continue a student in the elementary school to which s/he is initially assigned.
