Intradistrict Transfers for 2020-2021

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 submit a request during the transfer window of February 1 – March 31, 2020. No transfer requests will be accepted outside of this window, and no exceptions will be made. Note: if your student is currently on an Intradistrict Transfer and is moving to the next level (elementary to middle or middle to high school), he/she does not automatically move to the next school with their classmates. You must reapply for an Intradistrict Transfer. If your child is currently on an Intradistrict Transfer, his/her siblings do not automatically get into to the transfer school. You must apply for a separate Transfer for the sibling. Please click here for more information and frequently asked questions on transfer requests, as well as upcoming timelines for continuing student registration and new student enrollment.
