Naval Air Station Lemoore is located in Kings County in the San Joaquin Valley. There are over fifty schools within the 13 public school districts in Kings County, several of which are charter schools. Online public schools are also available. Private schools can be found in both Lemoore and Hanford.
In California, students in public schools must meet residency requirements to enroll, with the exception of some public charter schools. Attendance at a public school outside of residential boundaries, may be approved through the inter-district or intra-district transfer option if offered by the school of residence.
A child of an Active Duty Service Member is automatically released from the home district during the inter-district transfer process. California (Education Code 48301 f) prevents any public school district who participates in the inter-district transfer process from denying the release of a student whose parent is an Active Duty Service Member. The transfer student still needs to be accepted by the receiving school.
Each public charter school has its own enrollment process. Those who require application processes normally begin taking applications as soon as 8 months in advance. Private schools do not have residency requirements.
Links to the 13 school districts in Kings County can be found on the Kings County Office of Education web site. The NAS Lemoore School Liaison Officer can provide additional resources to assist families who are relocating to NAS Lemoore and the surrounding area.
