Interdistrict Attendance Permits
In accordance with an agreement between the Governing Board and the board of another district, a permit authorizing a student's attendance outside his/her district of residence may be issued upon approval of both the district of residence and the district of proposed attendance.
The Superintendent or designee may approve an interdistrict attendance permit for a student only for the following reasons and if the student meets the criteria outlined in the interdistrict agreement. Approval of the request does not guarantee placement at the specific school.
1. When the parent/guardian of the student works in the Lafayette School District and is at least 0.40 FTE and not an at-will employee.
2. When the parent/guardian of the student works in the Acalanes Union High School District and is at least 0.40FTE and not an at-will employee, and works in the Acalanes Union High School District that offers a reciprocal arrangement for the children of employees of the Lafayette School District
The Superintendent or designee may deny initial requests for interdistrict attendance permits due to limited district resources, overcrowding of school facilities at the relevant grade level, or other considerations that are not arbitrary. However, once a student is admitted, the district may not deny him/her continued attendance because of overcrowded facilities at the relevant grade level.
(cf. 0410 - Nondiscrimination in District Programs and Activities)
Within 30 days of a request for an interdistrict permit, the Superintendent or designee shall notify the parents/guardians of a student who is denied interdistrict attendance regarding the process for appeal to the County Board of Education as specified in Education Code 46601. (Education Code 46601)
(cf. 5145.6 - Parental Notifications)
Once a student is admitted to a school on the basis of an interdistrict attendance permit, he/she shall re-apply annually.
The Superintendent or designee shall notify the student's district of residence of the district's decision.
(cf. 5111.1 - District Residency)
(cf. 5116.1 - Intradistrict Open Enrollment)
