If any average Joe would be able to tell, "That's a K-12 school!" then you should reasonably know, and it's an area to avoid. If someone is homeschooling their kids, their home istechnically is a school zone. A reasonable person would not be expected to know that Jim Smith at 421 Primrose Lane is homeschooling his kids.I have spent a lot of time searching this site in preparation for my first OC outing. It seems that the one thing holding me back is section 626 of the penal code. My residence is located in a school zone and the surrounding areas seem to be riddled with them from what I see driving around. I was hoping someone would be able to help me in my understanding of what constitutes a "School Zone". Per section 626.9 (e):
Does this include tutoring facilities like Sylvann and the like? What about a church with a Sunday school program? What about "Special Needs" facilities? I think that its the "providing instruction in" part of the code that is causing my confusion. Does it only mean generally accepted k-12 curriculium being taught persuant to the local School District or is it broader than that? I would very much like to hear other's thoughts on this.Code:(1) "School zone" means an area in, or on the grounds of, a public or private school providing instruction in kindergarten or grades 1 to 12, inclusive, or within a distance of 1,000 feet from the grounds of the public or private school.
