Transfer Request

 

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 2022.

 

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.  Applications are available at each high school, the district office and online below.

 

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. Free Zone transfers are dependent upon site capacity.

 

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
