Admittance to Murdock Portal Elementary School

A question regarding priority admittance to Murdock Portal Elementary School for those who live close to Murdock Portal came up at the 10/26/05 General Meeting. Jeremy Nishihara, Communication Manager with the Office of the Superintendent of the Cupertino Union School District did some research and sent this response:

From: "Nishihara Jeremy"

The state of California mandated open enrollment in all school districts in California in 1994. The mandate states that if there are more applicants than space available, the selection process must be totally random and unbiased. The state defines random and unbiased as a lottery system.

The following year, there was follow-up legislation passed that allows the district to grant sibling priority in order to keep families together.

Therefore, it would be against the law for the district to give extra consideration to those families who live in close proximity to an alternative program school site.
