7:30 Student Assignment and Intra-District Transfer
The School District is divided into school attendance areas. The Superintendent will:
1. Review the boundary lines annually and recommend to the School Board any changes or revisions for existing units; or
2. Create new units using a lens that considers preventing segregation and the elimination of separating students in the District’s schools because of color, race, or nationality.
The Superintendent or designee shall maintain a map of the District showing current school attendance areas. All records pertaining to the creation, alterations, or revision of attendance units are open to the public. Students living in given school attendance area will be assigned to that school. Homeless children shall be assigned according to 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.

Students who are granted a transfer within the District shall be responsible for their own transportation. Transfers must be renewed annually by June 1.
