TRANSFER REQUESTS
 
The Governing Board desires to provide enrollment options that meet the diverse needs and interests of district students, parents and guardians while also balancing enrollment in order to maximize the efficient use of district facilities.
 
There are two processes by which a parent may request approval to attend a school other than their neighborhood school:
  • InterDistrict Transfers
  • IntraDistrict Transfers
 
All Transfer Requests are subject to space availability at the school, grade, and /or program requested, depending on the time of submission. They are NOT guaranteed. Please plan to attend your your school of residence unless you are notified that your transfer is approved.
 
If your child already attends the requested transfer school, he or she may continue to attend there until a grade span change (grades 5 and /or 8) unless you received a letter stating otherwise.
InterDistrict Transfer Requests
 
An InterDistrict transfer allows your child to attend a school outside of your school district of residence.
 
You must complete a form to be released from your district of residence to begin the process. All InterDistrict transfer requests must be completed in person.
 
Once HUSD or your district approves the release, the receiving district will consider your request.
 
The length of approvals are based on the InterDistrict agreements adopted by both governing boards and generally last through grade span changes when your child will enter a new school (middle school or high school)
 
After March 1, your transfer will be approved or denied based on space available however, you will NOT be placed on a waiting list.
 
Approved transfers can be revoked due to chronic non-attendance (>10% of school days), truancies (>30 minutes tardy or early release), or disciplinary issues.
 
Requests submitted after March 1, 2017 may not be considered until 10 days after school begins and class loads are determined.
 
IntraDistrict Transfer Requests
 
An IntraDistrict transfer allows your child to attend a school other than your neighborhood school.
 
You may use the form on the right of the webpage to submit your application to : transfers@hemetusd.org
 
An IntraDistrict transfer is valid until through a grade span change when your child will enter a new school (middle school or high school)
 
The IntraDistrict transfer form may be submitted in person or online (coming soon). 
 
The IntraDistrict transfer request window is Jan. 1-Mar 1.
 
In March, you will receive a letter telling you if the transfer was approved, denied or if you were placed on a waiting list.
 
FOR REQUESTS SUBMITTED AFTER MARCH 1 Your transfer will be approved or denied based on space available however, you will NOT be placed on a waiting list.
 
Approved transfers can be revoked due to chronic non-attendance (>10% of school days), truancies (>30 minutes tardy or early release), or disciplinary issues.
 
Requests submitted after March 1, 2017 may not be considered until 10 days after school begins and class loads are determined.
 
Conditions for Approval
  • Parent/guardian assumes responsibility for providing transportation.
  • Students must maintain attendance of 90% or better.
  • Any arrival after 30 minutes or early pick up of 30 minutes or more is considered a truancy by the state of California. Students with truancies may have their transfers revoked.
  • Students are expected to follow all class and school rules. Disciplinary issues such as suspension are grounds for revocation.
  • The transfer is granted for your child's current school. When your child changes schools at 5th or 8th grade, he/she will be assigned to their neighborhood school unless you apply for and receive a transfer.
