Depending on how a new house is situated in the subdivision, children from the same family could end up attending different school districts.

Under the state's policy, what matters is where the kids' bedrooms are located.

Case in point is the Mattias family. They bought a lot in the Town of Rochester and were surprised to learn their children could wander in and out of school districts within their own home.

The Mattias' ended up having their house redesigned so it sits entirely in one district.

The school districts have refused to change the boundry line for the subdivision's developer because they want the potential source of revenue.
