It has come to the District's attention that some of the new residents on McCandless Drive were
not aware that their school of residence was changed to Randall Elementary School back on
September 24, 2013. The district updated the district website's school locator database in late
February 2014 so the residents' complaint has some validity.
Based on communication with both developers, the district learned that D.R. Horton began sales
in January 2013, and at that time the boundaries were not changed; the school of residence was Zanker. Taylor Morrison started their sales on November 1, 2013 but was aware of the school change that occurred on September 24, 2013 through their title company. Hence, MUSD recommended to the Board of Education an exception to the district's attendance boundaries for some of the properties along McCandless Drive. The District will now accept enrollment requests for Zanker Elementary School from families that have a sales contract by November 1, 2013.
The following limitations apply for these new residents:
1) This exception only applies to residents who have a sales contract signed on or before November 1, 2013. For all properties purchased after Nov. 1, 2013, the School of Residence is Randall Elementary School.
2) This exception is limited to enrollment for the 2014-15 school year, beginning August 18, 2014. Qualifying students who enroll for the 2014-15 school year will be allowed to stay at Zanker until a new elementary school is built in the transit area. For initial enrollment in any school year beyond 2014-15, all transit area students are assigned to Randall Elementary School.
For students who fit this exception window, enroll a student at Zanker for 2014-15, and have younger siblings, those younger siblings will be allowed to enroll at Zanker Elementary School in future years.
