District Transfers

Inter/Intra-District Transfers (IDTs)

Poway Unified School District Board Policy (PUSD) allows for transfers within and from outside the PUSD boundaries.

Intra-District Transfers for 2022 - 2023 (if you live within PUSD, but would like your child to attend a school other than your school of residence - this includes incoming siblings of current students*)

Starting on February 1, 2022 at 8 am, transfer requests can be made on the Poway Unified School District website here through an online form. The transfer window closes on March 31, 2022 at 5 pm.

*For families who have an incoming transitional kindergarten, kindergarten or new student, you must submit a transfer during this window, even if your child is not yet enrolled. However, when new student enrollment opens on April 1, parents will need to enroll their child in their school of residence before the district office will consider the transfer.

Intra-District Transfers:

If you live in the Poway Unified School District boundary, but don't live within the Poway High School boundary, and want to attend Poway High, you will need to apply for an Intra-District Transfer. You can use the District Address Lookup Tool to check. 

Inter-District Transfers:
If you live outside the Poway Unified School District boundary and want to attend Poway High, you will need to apply for an Inter-District Transfer. If your request is for the current school year, applications are answered within 30 days of submission.

Once an IDT has been approved, you will need to complete the four enrollment steps - SEE NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT  (PHS).
