    If you are building a home or purchasing a home, you should take a contract with the anticipated date of occupancy to the school that you think your child will be attending.  If you are planning on renting a home, you will need to bring proof of a rental agreement with the address listed.  The school will be able to tell you if your home is located within CCUSD boundaries.  You may also consult the distict's home page under the 'Schools' link at the top of the site.  There is a choice titled 'Boundaries' which include a map of the district.
