No Boundaries: Was Your Child Assigned to the Nearest School?

Children Assigned To Nearest SchoolsWhen the new class of kindergarteners in the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District enter school in the fall, 80 percent of them will be attending the school closest to their homes. The rest will be attending schools that are either the second (15 percent), third (.8 percent) or fourth (3.6 percent) closest.

At last week’s meeting of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District board of trustees, Dr. Suzanne Roy, the assistant superintendent of education services for the district, gave an overview of the enrollment numbers for the 2012-13 school year.

251 New Kindergarteners

"During the first enrollment period, we had at total of 251 kindergarteners," said Roy, pointing out that that number represented students who did not have siblings at that elementary school.
