Inter District Transfer Permit Requests

If you live outside the Byron Union School District area and wish to attend school within Byron Union School District boundaries, a parent or legal guardian may apply for an Inter District Transfer request from the District of Residence. Applications will be reviewed for approval by the District of Residence.

If approved by the school district of residence, the request will be forwarded to Byron USD for review. If the transfer is approved by Byron USD, the parent/guardian will be notified via e-mail. If approved, please be prepared to provide the required records (listed below) for the past two (2) years via email to kedwards@byron.k12.ca.us

  • Transcripts and/or report cards

  • Attendance records

  • Behavior/Discipline

  • If Receiving Services - Copy of the 504 or IEP plan

* All transfers are granted based on space and program availability in the requested school.  Availability is determined by current and projected enrollment needs. 

** Transportation will not be provided for students who chose to attend outside their boundary school except as required by 20 USC 6316.

If you live within the Byron Union School District area and wish your student(s) to attend school in another School District, a parent or legal guardian must complete a Byron USD Inter-District Transfer Request Form.

Inter District Transfer Request Form

Signed and completed forms need to be submitted to kedwards@byron.k12.ca.us
Please make sure the words Interdistrict Transfer Request are in the subject line.

In addition, appropriate documentation MUST be submitted with the completed Request Form. Documentation required includes:

  • Proof of employment within the requesting District (i.e. copy of employee ID badge or paystub)

  • Verification of childcare and/or transportation (i.e. a signed and dated written statement that includes provider name, address, and phone number along with a specific description of the services provided for your student(s))

This documentation is necessary for consideration of the request. Transfers without appropriate documentation may be denied.

Information provided in the request form must be true and accurate. All information provided is subject to verification and that the mere act of ​completing the request form and providing all of the required documentation ​DOES NOT guarantee that the request will be approved. ​

Approved transfers will be automatically forwarded to the requested district for processing. You will be contacted via email regarding any transfer that is denied.

Students must be enrolled to have their transfers considered.  If you haven’t enrolled your student, please start the process at your student’s school of residence.  If you don’t know which school is your school of residence, please click here

PLEASE NOTE:  Your Inter District Transfer Requests need to be approved by both your resident school district and district of choice before enrolling in the school of choice. Please do not enroll/disenroll your student until you have received final confirmation from both districts.

Inter-District Transfer Requests must be submitted Annually for Approval.

Inter-district Transfer Permit Requests are reviewed annually and can be denied or revoked for a number of reasons:

  • Approval would risk the district’s enrollment in the student’s grade or specialized instructional programs to exceed capacity. No Space/Grade/Program Impacted/ CCCOE AR 5200 G (10)

  • Student was previously expelled or is currently under consideration for expulsion

  • Unsatisfactory behavior records as evidenced by office or class referrals

  • Unsatisfactory attendance as evidenced by school attendance records or SARB referral

  • Unsatisfactory academic progress/performance

  • For such other unusual circumstances which, in the discretion of the Superintendent or designee, justify the denial of the permit

  • The number of student transfers out of the district to a school district of choice has reached the limit specified in Education Code 48307 (b) based on the district’s average daily attendance.

  • Inaccurate or falsifying any information on the Request Form.

There are no appeal rights to the revocation of an inter-district transfer permit.

Intra District Transfer Requests

If you live within the Byron Union School District area and wish to attend another school within Byron USD boundaries, a parent or legal guardian may apply for an Intra District Transfer Request.

Students must be enrolled to have their transfers considered.  If you haven’t registered your student, please start the process at your student’s school of residence, which is their boundary school.  If you don’t know which school is your boundary school, please click here

Intra District Transfer Request Form

*Please make sure to include ALL supporting documentation for the reason of transfer request with the application. This documentation is necessary for review and approval.

The district office will provide notification on the final determination, and next steps via e-mail.

Once a student is placed at a school through the Intradistrict Transfer process, the student will not need to reapply on an annual basis as long as they are continuing at the same school.

  • Class size enrollment at the school of attendance exceeds class size limitations; or

  • Behavior, attendance and/or academic efforts fail to meet the standards of the requested school.

Intra-district transfer decisions are final; there are no appeal rights to these decisions.

Transportation will not be provided for students who chose to attend outside their boundary school except as required by 20 USC 6316.

NOTE:

All transfer permits are considered based on review of the required documentation, space/program availability at the requested school site as determined by current and projected enrollment needs (BP 5117), number of transfers based on ADA, attendance, behavior, and academic status.
