Intra-District Change Requests are valid for one year only and must be applied for each new
school year by the last day of the preceding school year. Intra-District students may be asked
to return to their school of residency to permit new students to enroll in their neighborhood
school. Shifts will usually happen within the first 10 days of the beginning of the school year,
or at the trimester/semester. Exceptions are seen in BP 5116.1.
Students who are overflowed by the district due to lack of space at their school of attendance
and whose parents request an Intra-District transfer to an alternative school to the District identified
overflow school will be considered on a space-available basis. The District identified
overflow school is chosen to guarantee continued enrollment at that school. The
district cannot guarantee continued enrollment at alternative sites.
The Board expects parents who live within our attendance boundaries to enroll their students in our schools, so we can continue to plan and meet our commitments. However, WPUSD has established a process to evaluate requests for students who reside in one district while intending to attend school in another district. This process is called an Inter-District transfer request. The request must be approved by the district in which the student lives and the desired district of attendance to allow the student to enroll. Inter-District Attendance Request Parent Handbook contains information to help clarify this process for parents, students, and the community (be patient as it downloads). Please complete the Inter-District Transfer Form and drop it off at the District Office or mail it using the address on the form. If this is your first request to attend a high school outside the district, you must first visit Lincoln High School for a tour and obtain a signature on the Inter-District Tour Form. Tours may be arranged by calling the high school at 916.645.6360 and asking for an "Inter-District tour." Any questions about the process that is not explained in the parent handbook may be directed to Emma Oehler at 916.645.6350.
