Interdistrict Attendance   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board recognizes that parents/guardians of students who reside within the geographic boundaries of one district may, for a variety of reasons, desire to enroll their children in a school in another district.

(cf. 5111.1 - District Residency)

(cf. 5116.1 - Intradistrict Open Enrollment)

The Governing Board has delegated the authority to accept or reject interdistrict transfer requests to the Superintendent and/or designee.

Students must have an approved interdistrict attendance agreement with the El Dorado Union High School District prior to enrollment within the District; feeder school district interdistrict agreements do not apply. (Education Code 46600)


The Board may enter into an agreement with any other school district, for a term not to exceed five school years, for the interdistrict attendance of students who are residents of the districts. (Education Code 46600)

The agreement shall specify the terms and conditions under which interdistrict attendance shall be permitted or denied. It also may contain standards agreed to by both districts for reapplication and/or revocation of the student's permit. (Education Code 46600)

Upon receiving a permit for transfer into the District that has been approved by the student's district of residence, or upon receiving a written request from the parent/guardian of a District student who wishes to enroll in another district, the Superintendent or designee shall review the request and may approve or deny the permit subject to the terms and conditions of the interdistrict attendance agreement.

The resident district of an interdistrict transfer request that has been denied shall send a timely written notice, in accordance with law, regarding the process for appeal to the County Board of Education. This notice shall be provided by the district denying the request, or in the absence of an agreement between the districts, by the district of residence.

The District will communicate with parents/guardians and students regarding the educational programs and services that are available in the District through the Course Directory and the Annual Notification publication.

Athletic eligibility may be affected by the transfer; students are subject to all District and CIF rules and regulations.

The Governing Board elects not to participate in the state's alternative attendance program.

A child of an active military duty parent/guardian shall not be prohibited from transferring out of the District to a school district of choice, if the other school district approves the application for transfer. (Education Code 48301)

(cf. 6173.2 - Education of Children of Military Families)


The District shall not provide transportation beyond any school attendance area. Upon request of a student's parent/guardian, the Superintendent or designee may authorize transportation for an interdistrict transfer student to and from designated bus stops within the attendance area of the school that the student attends if space is available.
