School Boundaries & Assignments

In order to accommodate IUSD students, each residential area is assigned to a particular school at each grade level. An assigned school serves all students from its assigned attendance area who wish to enroll there.  Intradistrict/School Choice, where seats are available, and Alternative Schools provide choices for students who wish to enroll in a school other than their assigned neighborhood school.

In some instances, assigned residential schools become impacted by enrollment.  Due to unavailable seats, a student may be requested to enroll in a school other than their assigned neighborhood school. In such cases, students have the right of continued enrollment at their new assigned school and it is treated as their neighborhood school. If there is an interest to return to their assigned neighborhood school when space becomes available, the principal of the neighborhood school should be contacted no later than noon on the fourth Friday in February.

Attendance Boundary Changes

Annually, the Board considers changes to School Attendance Area Boundaries.

Changes are held to a minimum, but are prompted by such factors as:

  • Declining enrollment in a given section of the district

  • New housing development in a given section of the district

  • Changes in capacity at a given school

  • Movement of special programs from one school to another

  • Alignment of elementary, middle, and high school areas

  • Home-to-school transportation distances
