District Transfer Requests

The Transfer Window has now closed.

District Transfer Window 11-16-20 - 01-01-21
Guidelines for Approval of a submitted Request

Guidelines for Approval of a submitted Request

  1. Enrollment Priorities for Intra-District 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 the 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. Applicants who receive approval must confirm their enrollment with the requested school within ten days.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Parents/guardians are responsible for transporting their children to the new school for which they have been approved.
