Intradistrict Transfers

Intradistrict Transfers

An Intradistrict Transfer gives permission for attendance at a district school other than that designated by the established attendance area. The Twin Rivers Unified School District intradistrict transfer process is now centralized in the district office. Intradistrict transfers will be evaluated by the Twin Rivers Unified School District Student Services Department based upon the following criteria:

  • Space Availability at the requested school program or grade.
  •  Special program needs of the student can be met satisfactorily at the requested school
  • The parent/guardian will provide transportation for their child to and from school.
  • The 2017 - 2018 intradistrict transfer request process will close November 15, 2017.

Procedure

  • The parent discusses the proposed school attendance change and reasons for the transfer with the principal of the school of residence.
  • The Intradistrict Transfer Request form is completed by the parent and signed by the principal of the school of residence.
  • The school sends the Intradistrict Transfer form to the district office for processing.
  • Once a decision is made by the district office a copy is sent to the home school and given to the parent.  If approved, district staff notifies the new school, parent, and notes transfer in Aeries.  This decision shall not take more than 14 days.
  • If the parent/guardian disagrees with the decision, they can contact Adam Saldana in Student Services Department at (916) 566-1620.

Conditions

  • Approval is subject to space availability.  No student currently residing within a school's attendance area shall be displaced by another student transferring from outside the attendance area.  (Ed. Code 35160.5)
  • Transportation is not provided.
  • Students transferring from one high school to another without a valid change of address may be ineligible from varsity level competition in all sports in which they competed in their previous school for one calendar year.  (C.I.F. Bylaw 207.B.)
  • NOTE: Before a student is returned to the home school due to behavior or attendance concerns, interventions must be documented by the school site (i.e., SST or Attendance/Behavior meeting, behavior support plan, or attendance contract).  The principal or designee should contact student services to schedule the student's return to the home school as part of the District Office Centralized Services Team (DCOST) process to determine availability of space, communicate concerns, and share the intervention plans that have been attempted.
