Board Policy 5110.2 - Attendance


The Board of Education authorizes the Superintendent to establish a system of school attendance areas.

Attendance Areas

The Board of Education establishes the following guidelines for the Superintendent in establishing these attendance areas:

  • The school attendance areas shall be established for every school without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin.
  • The school attendance areas for all pupils will be determined by the residence of their parents or legal guardians.
  • The school attendance areas established shall serve all pupils in proximity to the school where reasonable and proper, with appropriate regard to the safety and transportation of the pupils and to the capacities of buildings.
  • The school attendance areas shall be reviewed annually by staff personnel. Recommendations for changes in existing boundaries will be presented to the Board as new school facilities are available and school population increases or decreases in a given geographical area, thereby affecting pupil and staff assignment. When new attendance areas have been established and approved by the Board of Education, the parents and/or legal guardian of all pupils will be informed in writing of the school or schools in which their children belong.


School bus transportation shall be based upon serving the school attendance areas without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin.

Except as provided for by special programs, a pupil attending a school outside of his/her attendance area will not be entitled to receive free transportation.
