Zoning FAQs

Zoning FAQs


Q – Can I request a transfer for my student if I want him/her to attend a campus not in our zone? 

A – Dayton ISD will not offer transfers at this time.  All elementary campuses are designed to operate as equitably as possible.  Campuses will use similar programs and resources.


Q  –  My caregiver lives in a different zone than I do, will transportation be provided for my children from one zone to another? 

A – Transportation will be provided to students according to the zone where they reside. Transportation will not be provided across attendance zones.  Transportation will be provided to a licensed childcare facility or a grandparent’s home within the boundaries of the District, provided the facility or grandparent’s home is within the same attendance zone of the school in which the student requesting the service attends.


Q – Mom has primary custody with weekly visits to dad’s house in a different zone.  How will the zone be determined?  Will shuttle services be provided for situations like this? 

A – Student will attend the school zoned to his/her primary residence.  Transportation will not provide a shuttle bus to take a student from one zone to another. 


Q – Will kids be able to be walkers? 

A – Yes, students will be able to be walkers.


Q – Why does one zone appear to be bigger than the others on the map? 

A – Although one zone may look bigger than the other, zones were established to create schools with similar enrollments and demographics. 


Q – Will we receive information on the parent drop-off and pick-up lines at the new campuses?

A – Information on parent drop-off and pick-up will be determined by campus principals and shared with parents.


Q – How will zoning cut down on traffic?

A – Our hope is that traffic will lighten up with the zones because parents and our buses will not have to go to multiple elementary campuses to pick up students.
