Dear Poway Unified Parents, Guardians, and Community Members:  
 
In efforts to bring clarity to the enrollment and transfer timeline, please be aware of these important dates.  This timeline will be adhered to for our 2020-2021 Transitional Kindergarten through 12th grade enrollment and transfer processes.
 
February 1 – March 31, 2020: Transfer Requests Accepted
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, 2020 on the PUSD website
  • We will not accept transfer requests after March 31, 2020
  • 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 first or we cannot consider the transfer request. You still need to 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
    1. 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.
