When there is a change in a TVUSD school's boundary, a Grandfathering provision is implemented as part of the boundary change.
How it Works:
♦ Grandfathering is based on an affectedresidence address and a student's grade level at the time of the boundary change, NOT on the length of time at a school or schools.
♦ Enrolled students living within an affected school's boundary, who apply and are approved for a boundary-related transfer, are granted Grandfathered Status to the corresponding school or schools (depending on the case) before the boundary change took place.
♦ A Grandfathered Status continues to be valid as long as the conditions outlined in the Grandfathering Approval that parents/guardians are sent continue in place. These are:
The student's residence continues to be the Grandfathered address
The student is continuously enrolled
The student has satisfactory attendance, citizenship and scholarship
It is NOT necessary to submit additional transfer requests to the Grandfathered school, as long as these conditions continue to be met.
