Please note: Parents/guardians must submit Intra-District and Inter-District Requests to the district via online application between November 15th and January 1st, 2019. Late requests will not be considered.

Due to increased student numbers, the following sites are closed to transfer enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year:

  • Butte Vista
  • Tierra Buena
  • Andros Kaperos
  • Lincoln
  • Lincrest


For Intra-District transfers, if you have a transfer agreement already in place, the transfer remains in effect for the duration of the grade range at that school. A new transfer request will only be required when students transition between Elementary and Jr. High, as well as between Junior High and High school. K-8 students re-apply only when transitioning to High School.


Parents/Guardians must complete this online application.


No paper applications will be accepted this year. If you need computer access, there will be computer terminals available here at the district office at 750 N. Palora Avenue, Yuba City.


All Inter-District (students living outside YCUSD boundaries) Transfer Requests will only be approved for students that have a history of good grades, attendance and behavior as determined by administration. The Inter-District Transfer has to be requested every year within the annual application period, or the student will be dropped at the end of the current school year. A school principal may revoke the Approved Inter-District Request if a student does not maintain good grades, attendance, and behavior. A paper copy will still be required after the transfer is accepted online.

Guidelines for Approval of a submitted Request are:

Guidelines for Approval of a submitted Request are: iconGuidelines for Approval of a submitted Request are:title

  1. Enrollment Priorities for Intra-District and Inter-District Transfer Requests are as follows:
    • Board Policy states that no student currently residing within a school's attendance area shall be displaced by another student transferring from outside the attendance area
    • Students who attended the school the previous year with an Approved Intra-District Transfer Request
    • Students transferring from a school determined by the State to be “persistently dangerous”
    • Intra-District applicants who have a sibling enrolled at the requested school, or the transfer Approval becomes invalid
    • Any student whose parent/guardian is assigned to that school as his/her primary place of employment
    • All other YCUSD residents
  2. Except for priorities listed above, if a school has more applications than space available, student Intra-District Transfer Requests will be Approved by a random, unbiased selection process until the school is at capacity.
  3. Multiple birth students will be treated as a single number in the lottery. If their number is drawn and the number of students exceeds the number of spaces available, parents may take the space(s) and place the remaining siblings on a waiting list.
  4. By March 1st, as to whether their applications have been approved or denied. This notification will be by mail. If the application is denied, the reasons for denial shall be stated.
  5. Applicants who receive approval must confirm their enrollment with the requested school within ten days.
  6. Admission to a particular school shall not be influenced by a student's academic or athletic performance, unless the Request is for admission to a specialized district program that has enrollment criteria separate from school registration.
  7. A parent/guardian may appeal the district's denial of a transfer request by filing a written request of appeal with the District within 10 days of the receipt of the written notification of denial. In addition, a parent/guardian who believes he/she has been subject to discrimination may file an appeal using the district's Uniform Complaint Procedures.
  8. Special Education students may participate in open enrollment based on the above priority system and space available in the programs at the desired school with an approved IEP change of placement.
  9. Once a student has been accepted to a school outside of their neighborhood by an Approved Intra-District Request, that new school becomes the student's school of residence. Students who wish to return to their original neighborhood school of residence must reapply through the Intra-District Transfer Request process.
  10. Parents/guardians are responsible for transporting their children to the new school for which they have been approved.
