Important Information for Submission
- When completing the application form, NEW students to CUHSD do not have a student # assigned yet. On page 3 of the form (Residency Declaration) fill in the box with NA or X's.
- Proofs of Home Address are required with submission. Incomplete submissions will not be accepted.
- Submission does not guarantee approved acceptance.
- Late submissions will be reviewed with response letters to follow within 14 days of receipt.
- Notifications will go out via email or via US mail in late March. Please do not call the district office to check the status of your request until after April 1st.
- Reason for Transfer: the options on the Intradistrict Transfer form are the most often requested, however, if the reason to request a transfer is different, please include a letter of reasoning and attach it with the home address documents prior to submission.
- Per Board Policy, if space becomes available during the annual attendance audit at the onset of each school year, CUHSD will hold a lottery and begin contacting families. Previously denied requests will be held until the lottery or end of September, whichever comes first.
- All unapproved requests expire at the end of each September. You will need to reapply during the new transfer request window period if you wish to try again for the next school year.
- Any approved transfer may be canceled at any time subject to falsification of information stated on the request application, unsatisfactory grades, attendance or behavior. A review of these conditions will be performed throughout the school year. Students not meeting these agreed conditions may have their transfer immediately revoked.
- NOTE: Email notifications are sent via the original Informed-K12 submission form TO THE EMAIL ADDRESS LISTED ON THE FORM. You will be provided a "read only" copy. Follow instructions below:
- If an Intradistrict transfer is granted, it is valid so long as the student adheres to the agreement of satisfactory attendance, academics, behavior AND so long as the student resides at the address listed on the application. If there is a change of address after the time of submission, the transfer request is invalid and a new application must be submitted, with all required proofs of home address documents, for consideration.
- Transportation to your school of transfer must be provided by the parent(s) or legal guardian(s).
- Withdrawal from enrollment nullifies the transfer. Upon return to CUHSD, a new transfer request must be submitted during the open window.
- Reversals: Based on all requests received, resources are planned for all sites for the coming year. Should you decide to go back to your original resident school after approval has been granted, you will need to submit a new transfer request and the decision will be based solely on capacity.
