The present study represents an investigation of the administration of the statutory provisions in California’s Education Code which allow pupils resident in one school district to attend school in another.
What are the financial and educational implications resulting from the administration of California’s statutory provisions allowing pupils resident in one school district to attend school in another? This question sums up the problem.
The purposes of this study were, therefore, as follows: (1) To determine the effect of interdistrict school attendance upon the apportionment of State moneys to school districts; (2) To determine the effect of interdistrict school attendance upon the life and program of the school; (3) To determine the true intent of the statutory law permitting interdistrict attendance of school pupils; (4) To determine whether departures from the true intent of the law exist; (5) To organize the available information and raw data into a usable form; and (6) to assist in developing a method of equalizing educational opportunities in California in terms of fiscal support.
