La Cañada Valley Sun
The La Cañada school board will hold a special meeting Thursday at 6:30 p.m. to discuss whether changes should be made to the process in which applications for transfer into the district are accepted.
Currently, LCUSD gives top priority to applications from children whose parents work full time and second priority to those who work part time for the district. Sagebrush families, those living in the westernmost portion of La Cañada, receive third priority, along with people who work in the city but aren’t residents.
The examination follows a request from a John Womack, a resident living in the Sagebrush area. Womack addressed the board Tuesday in a public comment.
He said that although he and his wife both work in La Cañada, his 6-year-old daughter would be forced to attend kindergarten at Glendale Unified School District’s Mountain Avenue Elementary School.
“If you work in La Cañada and you live in La Cañada, and you’re a member of this community, you’re way down at the bottom (of the list) with somebody who works here, but lives far away,” Womack said. “I don’t understand why we wouldn’t have priority.”
