Intradistrict Transfer Timeline

Posted Date: 1/7/2021
To enroll your child in a school other than your "school of residence" for the 2021-2022 school year, a Transfer Request must be submitted between Feb. 1-March 31, 2021.
Intradistrict Transfer Requests – If you live in the Poway Unified School District boundaries and are interested in requesting a transfer to a school that is not your school of residence, you must do the following:
  • Submit a request during the transfer window of February 1 – March 31, 2021 on the PUSD website
  • We will not accept transfer requests after March 31, 2021
  • Parents who would like to keep siblings together must apply for a transfer during the February 1 through March 31 time period
  • If you have a student who is new to PUSD, you must enroll in your school of residence or we cannot consider the transfer request. Submit a transfer request during the transfer window, then enroll at your school of residence in early May.
  • If your transfer request is approved, your child automatically will be removed from his/her school of residence and placed at the approved school
  • Transfer decisions could possibly be determined as late as the day before school starts in August and after all neighborhood students and/or provisional students (those placed outside their attendance area due to class-size limits) are seated at their school of residence
    • Please note: Transfer decisions are based on seats available in the grade level of the requested school
If a transfer request is not submitted during the February 1 through March 31 window, students will attend their school of residence. Parents will need to reapply for a transfer the following year during the transfer window of February 1 – March 31.
