Board of Education Approves Changes to Student Transfers Policy


The Board of Education has approved changes to Policy JEE, Student Transfers. Policy JEE governs the process for how students move throughout the county via Change of School Assignments (COSA) or transfers. That includes the foreign language immersion lottery process. The change to Policy JEE establishes a weighted lottery for immersion programs that now include factors such as: socio-economic status and poverty; students who have an older sibling currently enrolled in a language immersion program and will continue to be enrolled in the year the younger sibling seeks to enroll; and other factors as identified by the superintendent of schools.
