The Student Assignment Goals were adopted by the Board on February 23, 2016, and incorporated into policy on November 9, 2016. The goals represent the Board’s priorities for assigning students to schools, while the Guiding Principles provide our superintendent and staff the blueprint for developing the Student Assignment Plan.
The Board believes that a Student Assignment Plan that promotes the Vision and the Mission of the Board will, to the extent possible achieve the following goals:
Provide choice and promote equitable access to varied and viable programmatic options for all children;
Maximize efficiency in the use of school facilities, transportation and other capital and operational resources to reduce overcrowding;
Reduce the number of schools with high concentrations of poor and high-needs children;
Provide school assignment options to students assigned to schools that are not meeting performance standards established by the state; and
Preserve and expand schools and programs in which students are successfully achieving the mission and vision of the Board.
The Goals for the student assignment plan are not listed in priority order.
