Yep, we have a great school district. One of the reasons are the bonds we have passed and are still paying for. Lots of volunteering by local residents helps as well.

Still think we should charge out of district students as their parents are getting a free ride. Then there are the parents who give their home address as Bishop Ranch and live elsewhere. Sweet deal for them also.

I am unimpressed with our public schools and am glad all my children have graduated. Each year, something worse than the prior year happens to a student.... many of the facts are not fully reported in the news. We need to bring in children from outside the district to fill in the void for those families who are leaving our public schools and sending their children to private schools. Yes, we pay for the school bonds with our tax dollars but the schools also receive federal funding based on number of students attending the school thus the need to open up enrollment to those outside the district to keep those federal funds flowing.

As it is, there are only 2 kindergarten classrooms at Twin Creeks, AM and PM are needed because the classes are too full. All parents want AM but are not given it. Now they're going to bring in more kids from other areas? What about the overcrowding that will happen when the kids from the new developments currently being built in San Ramon move in? Wonder if there was really any thought in this decision. So great to hear that my tax dollars are going to fund overcrowding in the schools. Are taxes going to be collected from the out of area families that will be coming in? Only fair right? We pay a lot higher taxes from all of the bonds because we have a high rated school district, still unsafe, but highly rated. Just really sux here being a parent of school age children now. Really do need to move out of state
