Boundary changes mean more students will attend school in Rancho Santa Fe
At the June 25 Solana Beach School District board meeting, the board tweaked attendance boundaries for residents in the Rancho Pacifica (Del Mar Highlands Estates), Polo Club and Morgan Run (Whispering Palms) developments. The changes will be implemented in the 2013-14 school year. The last time the boundary map was changed was in 2004 when Solana Pacific opened.
“We wanted to clean up our district map,” Brown said of the reason behind the change.
Currently nine students in the Rancho Pacifica neighborhood have a flexible option to attend Skyline and Solana Vista. Effective fall 2013-14, the attendance for this neighborhood will be assigned to Solana Santa Fe School in the Fairbanks Ranch area.
Residents in Polo Club and Morgan Run used to have an attendance option of Skyline, Solana Vista or Solana Santa Fe. Starting 2013-14, the assignment for the neighborhood will be Solana Santa Fe. About 27 students reside in these areas and 22 of them are already attending Solana Santa Fe.
Brown said most of the students with an option living in these communities already attend Solana Santa Fe and the travel path to the school just makes more sense for the residents.
