The Attendance Zone Advisory Commission (AZAC)
 

ABOUT AZAC

The Clark County School Districtís Board of School Trustees understands attendance boundary changes can be difficult for families and communities. To ensure their concerns are heard, the Board established the Attendance Zone Advisory Commission (AZAC) in 1994. The members of the AZAC are volunteers, parents and concerned citizens appointed by the Board of School Trustees and the Superintendent of Schools to represent their individual districts.

 

THE ROLE OF AZAC

AZAC members review attendance boundaries for all schools in Clark County each year and recommend changes to the Superintendent of Schools and the Board of School Trustees. This process begins in August and ends no later than March. While most attendance zone boundaries remain the same, some may be adjusted when an attendance zone is established for a new school or to relieve overcrowded conditions at an existing school.

The roles and responsibilities of the AZAC representative is to represent the trustee district from which they are appointed; however, they must be familiar with and make decisions on the entire district.

AZAC addresses zoning priorities provided by staff, as well as meets timelines set by the district. The AZAC follows relevant district policies, regulations, procedures, and guidelines.

Student Grandfathering

The Attendance Zone Advisory Commission (AZAC) may recommend attendance boundary changes with grandfathering of students at their currently enrolled school. All incoming 6th grade students and new students residing in the area will be reassigned.

An option is available to the grandfathered students should they wish to attend the newly assigned school. Transportation may be provided where eligible.

Future assessment of the area demographics will be conducted and may result in cancellation of the grandfathering by implementing the entire attendance boundary adjustment, as approved, at once.

 

Historical Overview of AZAC

In November 1966 the Clark County School District Board of Trustees set the guidelines for controlled school zoning:

  • Provide a framework for administrative, business,and instructional programs to originate.

  • Permit balancing of enrollments and management of human and financial resources.

June 14, 1994, the Board of School Trustees established the Attendance Zone Advisory Commission (AZAC).

May 23, 1995, the Board of School Trustees reconfirmed the continued use of controlled zoning, incorporating corridors and noncontiguous zoning as applicable
