High school board reviews intradistrict transfers

From page A8 | November 29, 2013 |

For the third year, the EDUHSD Board of Trustees approved a Peer Group Provision for Intradistrict Transfers at the Nov. 12 meeting. According to information provided to EDUHSD by SchoolWorks, an educational consulting firm, there are four areas with the district where some current seventh grade students are scheduled to attend a different high school than the majority of their peers. The Peer Group Provision allows for transfers so that those students may attend the same high school as their middle school peers.

The Peer Group Provision, initiated for the 2013-2014 school year and approved for the 2014-1015 and 2015-2016 school year, allows students who live in the Pleasant Grove Middle School attendance boundary as seventh graders and who live within the Oak Ridge High School attendance area to receive a transfer to Ponderosa High School prior to their ninth grade year. Students who lived in the Rolling Hills Middle School attendance boundary as seventh graders and who live within the Ponderosa High School attendance area may receive a transfer to Oak Ridge High School prior to their ninth grade year.

Under the Peer Group Provision, students who lived in the Marina Village Middle School attendance boundary as seventh graders and who live within the Ponderosa High School attendance area may receive a transfer to Oak Ridge High School prior to their ninth grade year and students who lived in the Camerado Springs Middle School attendance boundary as seventh graders and who live within the Oak Ridge High School attendance area may receive a transfer to Ponderosa High School prior to their ninth grade year.

EDUHSD has an open enrollment policy for high schools that are designated by the board as being under their established capacity. Intradistrict transfers for schools are allowed for students who are attending a school that has been designated for school improvement to schools not in school improvement; when the school of choice is not at or over capacity; if the student has been the victim of a violent criminal offense while on school grounds; if the school has been designated as “persistently dangerous” by the California Department of Education; if specialized programs are offered at one site; to a school where siblings are in concurrent attendance, or for continuing enrollment if the student’s family is moving to another school within the district attendance area.

According to a summary report on intradistrict transfers by Steve Volmer, EDUHSD associate superintendent of Student Services, there were five peer group transfers from Ponderosa to Oak Ridge in the 2013-2014 school year. The report summarized all transfer activity with eight students transferring from Oak Ridge to Ponderosa, 11 from Ponderosa to Union Mine and seven transferring from Oak Ridge to Union Mine as transfers to less impacted school sites.

Limited open enrollment transfers into Union Mine were 34 and program improvement transfers from El Dorado to Ponderosa were 14, and there were nine from Union Mine to Ponderosa. Ponderosa and the Virtual Academy at Shenandoah are the two schools designated by the district to receive school improvement transfers.

Volmer said the report was informational for the board, but they did vote to continue the Peer Group Provision through the 2015-2016 school year.
