Folsom ARC Neighborhood Zoned for San Juan Schools
You may or may not be aware that the west side of American River Canyon Drive South is in the San Juan School District. This neighborhood lies in the city of Folsom and pays Folsom taxes.
Because of the way the neighborhood is zoned, families living on this side of ARC Dr are required to submit an inter-district transfer to attend Folsom schools and are not guaranteed a spot.
If the class size is at capacity, that child may not be able to attend or continue to attend classes with the same group of students. Most families purchased homes in this neighborhood with the understanding they would be grandfathered into Folsom schools, but that is no longer the case.
The new South of 50 project only exacerbates this issue. There are currently no new schools being built to accommodate these new homes and families in this area will be sent to existing Folsom schools. These new homes are set to be zoned for Folsom and will likely be given priority over inter-district transfers.
We are asking the Folsom Cordova School Board to review the zoning and change it, or make an exception for this ARC neighborhood so the families living here can continue to attend Folsom schools without worrying their child may be turned away due to overcapacity.
If you agree this issue needs to be addressed and resolved by the Folsom Cordova School District, please sign our petition!
