AYP Public School Choice
Student Eligibility for School Choice
: All students enrolled in a Title I, Part A campus that has been identified for improvement are eligible to exercise the school choice option. However, in providing students the option to transfer to another public school, if the district is unable to grant each parent’s first choice of a new school or if the district is unable to provide transportation cost for all requests, the LEA must give priority to the lowest achieving children from low-income families, as determined by the LEA for the purpose of making Title I, Part A campus allocations. LEAs are required to offer the parents of each eligible student a choice of more than one school, if there is more than one school within the LEA that has not been identified for improvement, and to take into account the parents’ preference in assigning students to a new school. An LEA is obligated to provide school choice to all students. Transferring students should be treated as students who have moved into the receiving school's attendance zone and allowed to enroll in class and other activities on the same basis as all other students at the public school.
