A school age child, residing in the District, is entitled to attend a District school except as otherwise provided in applicable law. A child’s district of residence is that in which the child’s parents or guardians reside. When the parents of a student reside in different school districts due to separation, divorce or other reason, the student may attend school in the district of residence of the parent with whom the student lives for a majority of the time, unless a court order or court approved custody agreement specifies otherwise.
If the parents of a student share joint custody and time is evenly divided, the parents may choose which of the two (2) school districts the student will enroll in for the school year. If the child is an emancipated minor, the resident school district is the one in which the child is living.
