Student Transfer Policy to Be Reviewed

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District board plans to review student transfers between district schools at its meeting tonight.

At its Feb. 10 meeting the board voted to continue its moratorium on transfers in elementary grades. It decided to continue allowing transfers in grades 7-12, on a space-available basis, but asked district staff for a review of the 1997-98 transfers.

The current policy lets parents pick the children's schools within limitations on space and "appropriate racial and ethnic balances."

The board meets at 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 2985-A Bear St., Costa Mesa.

Information: (714) 424-5030.
