  • 2. I have submitted an Intradistrict Transfer Request to another school. When will I get a response?

    Posted by:

    For transfer requests submitted DURING the Open Enrollment period, official notifications will be sent by the end of May, at the latest, via email or postal mail.

    Transfer requests submitted AFTER the Open Enrollment period will be placed on a Wait List in the order they are received.  Parents/Guardians will NOT be notified unless space becomes available for the transfer to be approved from the Wait List.  If you are not contacted by the third week after school starts, it will mean we were unable to approve your transfer request, and we will no longer move students.  Parents should plan on attending their school of residence, or other previously-approved school, unless they receive notification that their transfer request is approved.

  • 3. What is the criteria for approving an Intradistrict Transfer request to another school?

    Posted by:

    During Open Enrollment, we give equal priority consideration to all requests, regardless of when they were submitted during the Open Enrollment window.   Space availability at the school, grade and/or program requested is the major determining factor for approval. 

    Transfer requests received after Open Enrollment are placed on a Wait List in the order they are received.  Date received and space availability at the school, grade and/or program requested are the major determining factors for approval.

  • 4. Do I need to submit a new Intradistrict Transfer request every year?

    Posted by:

    NO, once an Intradistrict Transfer is approved, it is valid for all grades at the same school, as long as you continue to live within the TVUSD attendance boundary, your child is continuously enrolled, and he or she has satisfactory attendance and behavior.  

    When your child is ready to move on to middle school (6th grade) or high school (9th grade), he or she will automatically be enrolled at his or her school of residence.  If you would like to request a different school for middle or high school, you will need to submit an Intradistrict Transfer Request during Open Enrollment (mid-October to end of January) of t he prior year(5th or 8th grade).

  • 5. If I have not received a response to my transfer request yet, should I wait to enroll/register?

    Posted by:

    NO, the enrollment and registration process is independent of the transfer process.  Parents are advised to enroll and register their child at their school of residence, until they have received a response regarding their transfer request.

  • 8. My student is on an Intradistrict transfer, but we want to go back to our school of residence.

    Posted by:

    Students on an approved Intradistrict Transfer are committed to completing the entire first school year at the transfer school.  As of the second school year, parents may opt to return to their home school before the start of the new school year by informing their transfer school of their wishes.  The school will then coordinate the change for the following school year.

  • 9. We recently moved. What do I need to do?

    Posted by:

    Parents/Guardians must notify their child(ren)’s school(s) when their address changes.  Please request a change of address through your Parent Portal and/or take two proofs of residency for your new address to your oldest child’s school.  You may view a guide to acceptable proofs of residency here.  The school will inform you if you need to take any additional steps.  (Schools have a form available for their students who move outside of their school boundary, but still within TVUSD, and who wish to continue with them.  This form is available all year long.)

  • 10. If I was approved but didn't enroll my child at the transfer school, is it valid the next year?

    Posted by:

    NO, you will need to submit a new Intradistrict Transfer Request during Open Enrollment (mid-October to end of January) for the following school year.

    For new students, you will want to enroll as soon as possible after receiving an approval, to ensure continued space availability.

    (For already-enrolled students, we will update the enrollment right away.)
