    There is NO boundary rule.

    If you live in the state of Kentucky you can go to any school you choose to as long as-

    1 You provide your own transportation if you live out of district

    2 They have enough room for you


    I don't know who put the idea of boundaries in your guys heads.

    Independents have a tax boundary but they also sign reciprocal(sp) agreements with surrounding school districts to get seat money, or they pay tuition.


    Large cities mat be different, but I do not know.

    Your blanket statement would be incorrect. Many public school systems do have boundaries.

    Somerset's boundaries are as big as the small town of Somerset... If I had to guess that's like 8-10 square miles. Many public schools have these same types of boundaries.

    So your telling me that only kids in those boundaries got to school there?

    Pikeville's boundaries are the city limits but students can choose to go there if there is room and tranportation.

    Its up to the princ. and BOE to set bondaries or not if they choose. The state does not set them.

    OK. So, what's your point?

    So instead of complaining to the KHSAA, complain to your BOE and princ. and remove your boundaries to anywhere in your county.

    Maybe the unlevel playing field exist between schools like the ones in the 64th district that allow anyone to attend their school regardless of where they reside at no cost to the student and a school like Somerset that is apparently limited to kids inside of their district.

    Just a thought.

    Seat money follows a students, around $3,200 unless it is a out of state student with no KY residence or no agreement between districts.

    Somerset needs to change their policy.(if they have that one)

    Wasn't that Guru's original point about a year or so ago?

    I don't know if our BOE can control our boundaries because I know that the deal is that we can't have students except that live in the city of Somerset. But the two county schools can take our students that live in the city with no problems whatsoever. Now there is something wrong with that. If the BOE can change that then they definitely need to.
