Student Transfers

  • Transfer Period for 2018-2019 School Year is January 15, 2018 - March 1, 2018
    Transfer request DEADLINE for the 2017-2018 school year was 3/1/17.


    Decisions regarding transfers submitted by the March 1, 2017 deadline will be made by June 1, 2017. Transfers submitted by the 3/1/17 deadline are approved pending available space at the desired school.  Should a school receive more transfer requests than there are spaces available, approval will be determined through a random, unbiased selection process to establish the order in which transfers will be approved and to initiate a waiting list (refer to CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL on the online form).

    Transfer requests received before the deadline will have priority over transfer requests received after the deadline.  However, the order in which transfers are received prior to the deadline has no effect on the approval decision.

    INTRADISTRICT transfers are from one SCHOOL to another SCHOOL within the Cajon Valley Union School District (CVUSD). 

    If your student lives within the CVUSD boundaries and wishes to attend a CVUSD school other than his/her resident school, you may apply for an Intradistrict transfer for the 2017/2018 year online by clicking here.

    Submitting the 2017/2018 intradistrict transfer request online (by clicking the link above) is the preferred method; however, you may also come to the Long-Range Planning Department to submit the form in person. Forms may be downloaded using the link below.                        

    INTERDISTRICT transfers are from one DISTRICT to another DISTRICT. This is a two-step process: (1) the District of residence must sign authorizing release of the student; and (2) the District of desired attendance must sign indicating its decision regarding approval of the transfer request. Forms may be downloaded using the link below.
