School Choice

School Choice

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB)  gives parents/guardians of students attending a Program Improvement (PI) school the right to request a transfer of their child(ren) to a non-PI school within the district, Coachella Valley Unified School District (CVUSD). This option is not available to CVUSD families because all CVUSD schools are currently in Program Improvement status and our neighboring district does not have the capacity to allow transfers. If this were an option, the district would provide transportation to the non-PI school for as long as the home school continues to be identified as a PI school. If the home school exits PI by making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two consecutive years, the student could remain at the non-PI school; however, transportation would no longer be funded by the district. If the demand for choice exceeded funds available, priority would be given to lowest achieving, low-income students.
