What factors are considered when determining school attendance areas?

There are 15 factors listed in Board of Education Policy 6010 School Attendance Areas that are considered when attendance area adjustments are proposed. These factors are categorized in the following groupings:

  • Facility Utilization
  • Community Stability
  • Demographic Characteristics of Student Population.

Each category is listed in detail in Policy 6010. This policy does not require compliance with all 15 factors, nor does it provide a rank or weight for the factors. It is a list of the items to be considered in any boundary review. 

While each of these factors is considered, it may be impractical to reconcile each and every school attendance area adjustment with each and every factor.
