District of Choice Program
California has several laws designed to give parents a choice about which school their children attend. One of these laws is known as the District of Choice program. This program allows a student living in one school district to transfer to another school district that has deemed itself a District of Choice. The program differs from existing interdistrict transfer laws because it does not require students to apply for an interdistrict transfer leaving their home districts to attend Gorman Elementary School.
The new Senator from Bob Huff’s former district, Josh Newman, in keeping with one of his campaign promises, has introduced a bill, SB 52, that would extend DOC through the 2022 fiscal year. Since this was the election that gave the Democrats their super-majority, they may be willing to grant him a “win” that he can take back to his constituents.
