School Attendance Boundaries
School attendance boundaries are the discreet “lines” drawn around public schools to define which households attend them. Within any given school district, there may be many schools for the same level of education (e.g. elementary schools) and it is school attendance boundaries that define the households associated with each school. School officials determine school attendance boundaries and periodically adjust them to account for demographic shifts and other local community factors.
When considering purchasing a home or renting an apartment, it is the association of the residence that will drive your public school options.
