District Boundaries

Information Regarding Changes to Elementary School Zones

During the 2020-2021 academic year, the district will begin the transition from its current school placement and transportation model for elementary students to a system based on geographic boundaries for each elementary school. Each home address in the district will be assigned to an attendance zone with a designated elementary building serving those residences.

  • There will be no change to Caledonia’s transportation system in the 2020-2021 school year.
  • Students enrolled on or before January 1, 2020, may to choose to remain at their current elementary school or apply for an in-district transfer to their boundary zone school.
  • In preparation for the transition, all new residents and incoming Kindergarten students will be placed at the school in their respective 2021-2022 geographic boundary or attendance zone (see maps below).
  • Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, parents who opt to keep their children in a school building outside of their attendance zone will be responsible for transportation to either an approved bus stop or to the school.
  • Parents who are seeking to transfer to their boundary zone school or a transfer for any other reason may request an internal transfer. Please see the "In-district Student Transfer" section on the main Enrollment page.

The In-District Transfer Form will be available on the website on March 15, 2020.

  • Completed forms must be submitted (in person, via email, via fax) to Caledonia’s Administration Office by April 30, 2020. Placement will occur on a first-come, first-served basis, dependent on seat availability, in the priority order listed below:
