Ladera Ranch

        'Fence Jumpers' to be Removed from Ladera Schools

In a letter sent recently to the parents of all Ladera Ranch students, the Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) announced its intent to enforce student residency requirements. The move comes in response to reports of widespread residency falsification which has created overcrowding in Ladera schools. 

As school facilities were built with Mello Roos funding, families whose property taxes were used to build the schools are given priority. I estimate 200 students attend Ladera schools who are ineligible because they either do not live in Ladera or are not authorized under School of Choice to attend the schools. 

The District will use an address verification company and a private investigator to confirm residency. Each family will be required to resubmit two acceptable forms of residence verification. The deadline for submission is May 20, 2015 at 3 p.m.. Students deemed ineligible will be reassigned to other schools at the end of this semester.

The impacted schools include Ladera Ranch Elementary School, Ladera Ranch Middle School Oso Grande and Chapparral Elementary Schools.
