Transfer

Dear Parents and Guardians:
 
You and your child are entering the next phase of your student’s educational development.  As you know, parental involvement is critical to student success.  In addition to welcoming you to the Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD), I want you to know how much our staff looks forward to your active participation.  Together we can achieve academic and personal success for each member of the Class of 2021.
 
As Superintendent, I urge you to acquaint yourself with the outstanding programs each of our sites has to offer.  It is natural for students and parents to look forward to high school with both excitement and some apprehension.  We are here to help you enjoy the feeling of growth and accomplishment that the high school experience has to offer.  The closer we work together as partners in your student’s learning, the more meaningful the high school experience will be.
 
Our policy on intradistrict transfers (transfers within our district) allows your student to attend the high school where you reside or to request a transfer to one of our other schools.  Transfers will be granted based on school capacity.  If requests exceed a site’s capacity, priority will go to siblings of current students.  After that, transfers will be granted through a random, unbiased lottery.  Applications are available at each high school and the district office.
 
At this time, two Free Zones exist for Leigh and Branham only.  If you reside in the White Oaks/Hogue Park area (Free Zone #1), your residence school is Leigh.  If your option is a transfer to Branham, you must apply for the intradistrict transfer.  If you reside in the area south of Blossom Hill/East of Camden Avenue (Free Zone #2), your residence school is Branham.  If your option is a transfer to Leigh, you must apply for the intradistrict transfer.
 
On behalf of the CUHSD Board of Trustees, each high school principal and staff member, we look forward to meeting you and your student.
 
Sincerely,
Robert R. Bravo, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Interdistrict Transfers

Students living outside the Campbell Union High School District who wish to attend a school within the district must initiate an interdistrict transfer request starting at the school district where they currently reside
 
Students living within the Campbell Union High School District who wish to attend a school outside the district must complete a CUHSD Interdistrict Transfer form (see below) and return it to the district office.  Once this form is completed and if approved, it is forwarded to the new school district for their consideration.
Intradistrict Transfers

Once each year beginning December 1 and ending at 4:30 p.m. on the Friday before President's week (see district calendar), the parents/legal guardians of students who live within the boundaries of the Campbell Union High School District may complete an application (available below) to request a transfer to any other Campbell Union High School District school for the following school year.  These are called Intradistrict Transfers and will be granted as long as space exists within the school requested for a new student.  Notification of transfer results will be mailed to parent/legal guardian by the end of March.  Applications received after the cut off date will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
 
If insufficient space exists, the request will be held until the end of September. Should space become available, transfers will be granted through a random and unbiased lottery. There is no need to reapply or call our office. You will be notified by U.S. mail should your student be granted the transfer.
 
Intradistrict transfer request applications expire at the end of each September. You will need to reapply during the new open enrollment period if you wish to try again for the next school year.
 
 Applications are available below or may be picked up from the district office or your resident school. You must also include a copy of one proof of residency document (see residence requirements below) along with the application. 
 
Please return all completed forms between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM to the district office:

3235 Union Avenue
San Jose, CA 95124
