Parent’s Workplace Establishes Residency for School Attendance
A school district may deem that a pupil has complied with the residency requirements for school attendance in the district if at least one parent or the legal guardian of the pupil is physically employed within the boundaries of that district at least 10 hours per school week. This provision, which was originally scheduled to expire on July 1, 2012, has been extended to July 1, 2017.
Senate Bill 381 (codified as Cal. Ed Code § 48204) (effective January 1, 2012).
District residency status may be granted to a student whose parent/guardian is employed within district boundaries. (Education Code 48204)
Applications for Admission
When applying for his/her child's admission to a district school based on employment, the parent/guardian shall provide proof of employment within district boundaries, such as a paycheck stub or letter from his/her employer.
The Governing Board may deny enrollment based on parent/guardian employment if any of the following circumstances exists:
1. The additional cost of educating the student would exceed the amount of additional state aid received as a result of the transfer. (Education Code 48204)
2. Enrollment of the student would adversely affect the district's court-ordered or voluntary desegregation plan. (Education Code 48204)
3. The school facilities are overcrowded at the relevant grade level.
4. Other circumstances exist that are not arbitrary. (Education Code 48204)
Students enrolled in the district on the basis of parent/guardian employment shall not be required to reapply for enrollment in subsequent school years. Such students may continue to attend school in the district through the highest grade provided by the district, if the parent/guardian so chooses and if one or both of the student's parents/guardians continue to be employed within district boundaries, subject to the restrictions specified in law related to excess costs and negative impact on desegregation plans. (Education Code 48204)
