Intra-District or Inter-District Transfers
The District Transfer Window CLOSES 3/31. Make sure you apply before it closes.
If you are at your middle school on an Intra-District Transfer, you still need to reapply if you do not live in the boundary of the school you want to go to. If you are in the process of getting an Intra-District Transfer, please complete the CRF Worksheet and Online Registration for the school you are slated to attend.
Please complete the CRF Worksheet for the school you are applying for an Intra-District Transfer to attend next year.
At the top of both CRF Worksheets write that you are applying for an Intra-District Transfer and the school you are hoping to attend.
Turn in both worksheets and submit courses online by the due dates.
Example: If you are slated to attend Westview, but would like to come to Poway, You will fill out Westview's Course Request Form and Online Course Selection, then you will also fill out Poway's Course Request Form. At the top of the form(s) write that you applied for an IDT to Poway High. Be sure to submit everything by the due dates.
If you live outside the Poway Unified boundaries, you can apply for an Inter-District Transfer from the PUSD Office. According to the District Instructions for Inter-District Transfers, you may not know if you are approved until just before school starts in August. Be sure to follow any enrollment/registration requirements for your home school, in case your transfer is denied.

What you will need for enrollment:
District Enrollment Paperwork (Available in April on the District Website)
Most recent 8th Grade Report Card
