Students who takes advantage of the grandfathering option shall provide their own transportation.

  • Rising 8th graders (current 7th grade students) to finish middle school; and

  • Students currently enrolled in a dual language program and their siblings currently enrolled in the same elementary school.

Students otherwise eligible for grandfathering may be reassigned if the special program required to meet the needs of the student is not in the school to which the student is currently assigned or pursuant to an assignment to an alternative school. Additionally, a student will not be able to gain admission into a special program school (i.e. CATA or UCEC) or an academy within a school (i.e. Culinary Arts or Law Enforcement) through the grandfathering process.
