BOARD POLICY - 5117.1
California state law and the rules and regulations of the State Board of Education state a preference that students attend schools in their districts of residency. The Open Enrollment Act (Education Code section 48350 et seq.) allows students attending a school identified by the California Superintendent of Public Instruction as being subject to the requirements of Education Code §48350 et seq. (an “open enrollment school”) to submit an application for enrollment in another higher performing school. Interdistrict transfer requests made pursuant to the Open Enrollment Act (“Romero Bill transfers”) shall only be approved by the Superintendent or designee in accordance with the provisions of this policy and its implementing regulations.
