5117 BP - Interdistrict Attendance

Board Policy No. 5117
Policy Adopted: November 20, 2014


The Governing Board recognizes that parents/guardians of students who reside in one district may, for a variety of reasons, choose to enroll their child in another district.

(cf. 5116.1 - Intradistrict Open Enrollment)

Interdistrict Attendance Permits

Upon request by students’ parents/guardians, the Superintendent or designee may approve interdistrict attendance permits with other districts on a case-by-case basis to meet individual student needs.

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that interdistrict permits specify the terms and conditions agreed to by both districts for the granting, denial, or revocation of the permit as well as the standards for reapplication.

The Superintendent or designee may deny interdistrict attendance permits because of overcrowding within district schools or limited district resources.


The District shall not provide transportation to any student attending District schools on an interdistrict transfer agreement.
