Can my child attend a school other than his/her assigned school?
District policy regarding Intra-district Open Enrollment is as follows:
The Governing Board desires to provide options that meet the diverse needs, potential and interests of district students. The parent/guardian of each school-age student who resides within district boundaries may select the school of attendance irrespective of the particular location of his/her residence within the District, except that the District retains the authority to monitor appropriate racial and ethnic balance among the schools at its discretion. The superintendent or designee shall determine the capacity of each district school and establish a random, unbiased selection process for the admission of students residing within the District from outside a school's attendance area. Selection shall not be based on the student's academic or athletic performance. The District will uniformly apply existing criteria for admission to specialized schools or programs.
To apply for an intra-district transfer, first contact your school of residence. The staff there will initiate the process with the school you want to change to.
For more information please contact the Educational Services Office at the District Office, 963-1611 extensions 322
How do I get an interdistrict transfer?
District policy regarding Interdistrict Attendance is as follows: The Governing Board recognizes that students who reside in one district may choose to attend school in another district and that such choices are made for a variety of reasons. Upon request, the superintendent or designee may accept students from other districts and also allow students who live within the district to transfer out to other school districts.
To apply for an interdistrict transfer into Glendora, you must first contact your home district for a release. They will provide you with a form that you should then bring to the GUSD District Office. For more information please contact the Educational Services Office at the District Office, (626) 963-1611, extension 325.
What can I do if my request for an interdistrict transfer is denied?
A parent or legal guardian may appeal a denial for an interdistrict transfer and every school district is required to have a process of appeal and to inform parents of their rights. Anyone denied a release should request a copy of their rights to appeal from the district which has denied the transfer. If it is not provided, they can call the Division of Student Support Services at the County Office at (562) 922-6233 for information on how to proceed or go to the County website at www.lacoe.edu and type the words “interdistrict attendance appeal” in the search box.. They may also call (626) 963-1611 ext. 325 for additional help. The appeal to the County Office of Education must be made within 30 days of the denial.
What are the age requirements for school enrollment?
Kindergarten: students must be five on or before December 2 of that school year (no exceptions).
First Grade: students must be six on or before December 2 of that school year. However, if the student completed a full year at a private accredited
Kindergarten, the school can enroll the student regardless of the
Evidence of Minimum Age: According to Education Code 48002 proof of age may be in the form of a certified copy of a birth record, a statement by the local registrar, a county recorder certifying the date of birth, a baptism certificate duly attested, a passport, or when none of the foregoing is obtainable, an affidavit from the parent, guardian, or custodian of the minor.
However, we recommend the schools use the birth certificate as the official proof of age. When this is not available the other avenues of proof may be used until the parent can obtain the birth certificate.
