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.
