Cupertino School District will find you and kick you out quickly if you no longer belong to the neighborhood school
The Cupertino Union School District (CUSD) is constantly checking to make sure the students who go to its schools still are eligible. Â Some parents might think that once they get their kids into the system at the beginning of the school year, they won't have to worry about the school district checking in the middle of the year. Â However, that is not true. Â The CUSD checks various databases CONSTANTLY. Â Even if your child only has only two more months to finish the school year, if you move, the CUSD will find out and pull your child out within a couple weeks. Â
I recently spoke to a parent who confirmed CUSD's strict enforcement from her personal experience. Â They were renting in one of the top schools within the district, then bought a house in ANOTHER top school in the district. Â She didn't think they would notice. Â However, they did and called her. Â Then she thought she might be able to convince the CUSD to allow her son to finish the last 2 months of his school year because (1) only a couple months left and (2) the current and new elementary schools in question were equally good. Â Both were top notch desireable schools. Â You can't trade your middle seat for a window/aisle seat, but you'd think you could trade your window/aisle seat for an equally valued aisle/window seat. Â However, the CUSD still did not let her son just complete the last two months.
The CUSD is contstantly on the look out and will find you and kick you out quickly if you no longer belong to the neighborhood school. Â This strict enforcement should also be seen as a positive. Â Kids who are on the waiting list get their fair chance to get into the school because the CUSD is constantly checking for students who no longer meet elgibility.
