Blue Ribbon Healthy Schools Solution Tree


Zach Elementary is a neighborhood school. Due to being at capacity in enrollment, in order to attend Zach Elementary, a student must live within the school boundary (a.k.a. the Zach attendance area).  If a student moves out of the Zach attendance area during any school year, they can remain enrolled in Zach until the end of that school year. If a student moves out of the Zach attendance area and wants to remain at Zach for the duration of their elementary career, their school choice application for the incoming school year will be reviewed on a case by case basis, taking class size, grade level size, and whole school capacity into account, while following the PSD School Choice Priority List.  Please note Zach is rarely able to accept students who live outside the PSD boundary. We encourage families that attend Zach to continue to live within the Zach attendance area in order to guarantee their child's enrollment at our school. Please contact the Principal, Aisha Thomas, if you need a consult on this situation.
