Individual school boundaries have been established for all Unit 5 Schools based on the residence of the parent or guardian. The following procedure has been established to address the issues of attending a school other than the one assigned.
For K-8 students, exceptions will be granted based on the enrollment numbers at the requested and the assigned schools. Receiving an attendance exception is a privilege, not a right.
For High School (9-12) students, exceptions will be granted only for documented health or psychological problems. In order for a student attending high school on an attendance exception basis to participate in any Illinois High School Association (IHSA) sponsored activities, the student must be declared eligible by that organization.
