Exception to Attendance
A parent or guardian may request an exception to attendance for a student(s) to attend another school other than their neighborhood school attendance area. Exception to Attendance Applications require a valid reason, and are reviewed by the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education. It is also important to note that exception to attendance does not apply to District-Wide schools and programs.
Conditions of an Exception to Attendance
An Exception to Attendance form must document reasons student attends a school outside of their neighborhood area school.
- Exception to Attendance may be limited based on the academic welfare of the students, the building capacity, and the current class sizes.
- The student must maintain acceptable attendance and behavior or the exception may be rescinded and the student would return to the home attendance area school.
- Transportation is not provided and is the responsibility of the student's family.
Exceptions to attendance for Elton Hills and Gibbs elementary schools are closed for the 2019-2020 school year.
