2019-2020 Interdistrict Applications will be accepted starting February 12, 2019
The Interdistrict Transfer process applies to those parents who wish their children to attend school in a district other than that in which they reside. All Interdistrict requests must be initiated in the district of residence. Interdistrict transfers are valid for one year only and must be renewed annually. An approved interdistrict agreement must be in effect between the district of residence and the school district of desired attendance before a student can attend the desired school.
The following conditions apply:
HBCSD reserves the right to deny incoming student transfer requests due to the following reasons: impacted programs, unsatisfactory attendance, academics or behavior.
BOARD POLICY 5117
The Board of Trustees recognizes that parents/guardians of students who reside in one district may, for a variety of reasons, choose to enroll their child in a school in another district.
The Board may enter into an agreement with any other school district, for a term not to exceed five school years, for the interdistrict attendance of students who are residents of the districts. (Education Code 46600)
The agreement shall specify the terms and conditions under which interdistrict attendance shall be permitted or denied. It also may contain standards agreed to by both districts for reapplication and/or revocation of the student’s permit. (Education Code 46600)
Upon receiving a permit for transfer into the district that has been approved by the student’s district of residence, or upon receiving a written request from the parent/guardian of a district student who wishes to enroll in another district, the Superintendent or designee shall review the request and may approve or deny the permit subject to the terms and conditions of the interdistrict attendance agreement.
The district shall not provide transportation beyond any school attendance area. Upon request, the Superintendent or designee may authorize transportation for interdistrict transfer students to and from designated buy stops within the attendance area if space is available.
