Middle School Partner Zone Framework
Our district has approved changes to transportation eligibility for the 2023-24 school year to improve reliability.
A student’s neighborhood middle school is determined by their residential address. Please refer to the Find Your School application or contact the Student Placement Office at (531) 299-0302 to determine a student’s neighborhood school. The Middle School Partner Plan, by default, assigns and guarantees enrollment of a middle school student to his/her neighborhood school. Any student who resides >1.5-miles (2023-2024 school year 2.0 miles) walking distance from his/her neighborhood school is eligible for transportation dependent on the school placement and transportation routing timeline.
While enrollment at the neighborhood school is guaranteed, approval for placement in a non-neighborhood school is based on space available at the requested grade and the placement criteria during the application process. Students may apply to attend any non-neighborhood middle school. A student is eligible for district-provided transportation to non-neighborhood schools within the partner zone in which he/she resides. Students must reside >1.5-miles (2023-2024 school year 2.0 miles) from a partner zone school, or the District partner – King Science & Technology Center – to be eligible for transportation.
The middle school partner zones are a collection of three to four middle schools in diverse areas across the school district. Transportation to middle school partner zone schools are also subject to the school placement and transportation routing timeline and the time of year a student selects or changes schools.
