important information for all

interdistrict transfers

The Inter-District Transfer process applies to those parents who wish their children to attend school in a district other than their district of residence.

All Inter-District Transfer requests must be initiated in the district of residence.

Inter-District Transfers are valid for one school year only and must be renewed annually.

An approved Inter-District Transfer must be in effect between the district of residence and the school district of desired attendance before a student can attend the desired school.

When applying please note that you are agreeing to the following conditions:

  • When a students' residence is changed, the parent or guardian shall notify the school of the change in residence promptly.
  • Transportation, if needed, shall be the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
  • Childcare, if needed, shall be the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
  • Students admitted to CUSD under the Inter-District Transfer process shall be assigned to schools where space is available at the discretion and determination of CUSD administration.
  • All students and schools are subject to all California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) athletic eligibility rules and regulations. Approved transfers should not be understood to mean that any CIF rules or regulations have been waived.
  • A student, parent, or guardian found to have given a false address and/or other pertinent data as a basis for enrollment in any school in the district shall have the transfer revoked. The revocation shall be immediate and notice promptly given to the student and parent/guardian.
  • If an INTER-District transfer request is denied, you have the opportunity to appeal the decision to OCDE within 30 calendar days.
  • The transfer committee will consider transfer requests based on the date the request was submitted and the reasons given for requesting the transfer. If an outgoing transfer request is denied, the parent will receive a denial notification from Student Services.
  • Transfers will be granted based on space availability after all students residing within CUSD are placed. 

CUSD reserves the right to deny transfer requests or release students for the following reasons: adverse impact on ethnic balance; insufficient state aid; lack of documentation concerning employment by the identified district; lack of facilities either district-wide or in a specific attendance area/school; lack of suitable or impacted special education programs; student history of unsatisfactory attendance; behavior, or academic performance.
