School Assignment

School Assignment

At certain times of the year, DMUSD schools may be at or near capacity.  When that occurs, new students are assigned to another DMUSD school where space is available.  For current information on a school's enrollment capacity, contact Student Services at  Every effort is made to place students at the school in their attendance area; however, due to the growth within the District in the last several years and the District's commitment to maintain balanced, low class sizes at all school sites, it has been necessary to establish district-wide school placement procedures.  The placement of each student will be handled according to established Board approved priority designations and Board Policy/Administrative Regulations 5111, 5116, 5116.1.  Students are placed at a school on a space available basis.  It may not be possible to honor every request regarding school preference.
Residency Verification

Residency Verification

If any District employee reasonably believes the parent/guardian of a student has provided false or unreliable evidence of residency, the District shall make reasonable efforts to determine if the student meets residency requirements. Reasonable efforts include, but are not limited to home visits and investigation by a private detective. Falsification of any information or documents, either written or verbal will result in revocation of enrollment.
