Joint Physical Custody: If custody is held jointly by two or more persons, "custody" means the physical custody of the child.  For purposes of residency for parental joint custody, whichever parent has the student for the greatest percentage of time during the school year will determine residency.  If the case of 5050 joint physical custody, the family may decide in which school district to enroll the student.
