LCUSD and GUSD engaged this consulting firm to provide “an impartial analysis of the potential fiscal effects of the proposed territory transfer,” using data provided by both districts. Major areas explored were operating costs, facility costs and repayment of bonded indebtedness.
California Education Code Section 48204(b) permits a school district to deem a pupil to have complied with the residency requirements for school attendance in the district if at least one parent/guardian of the pupil is physically employed within the boundaries of that district. Once admitted to residency, the pupil’s transfer may be revoked only if the parent ceases to be employed within the boundaries of the district. As a resident, the student does not have to re-apply for the transfer to be valid.
