What school will my student attend?

What if my home school is filled to capacity?
Although most families are likely to get into their home school, EGUSD is not able to guarantee placement for every child at their home school. If a school is filled to capacity, it could result in new students at the elementary level being offloaded or at the secondary level being redirected to another school within the district.

Parents seeking more information offloading situations at the elementary level can contact the PreK-6 Education office at (916) 686-7704 and for redirecting information, contact the 7-12 Education office at (916) 686-7706

Will transportation be provided for my child if they are offloaded or redirected?
Students offloaded at district direction between school sites in eligible areas will not be charged a transportation fee. However, students must still register to ride and obtain a bus pass before boarding.
