INTER-DISTRICT TRANSFERS

The Beaverton School District’s School Board has agreed to accept Inter-District Transfers for the 2018-2019 school year as described below.  If more requests are submitted than slots available, an equitable lottery will be done.  Please complete an Inter District Transfer request form and submit to interdistricttransfer@beaverton.k12.or.us.  Forms can also be faxed to 503.356.4415 or dropped off at the Beaverton School District Office, 16550 SW Merlo Road, Beaverton.  Forms will be available on this website between May 1 - May 31, 2018. 

 

Beaverton School District will also review Inter District Transfer requests from families who believe their reason for a transfer, into or out of the district, is based on a hardship as defined in OAR 581-021-0019 (1) (c).  If you feel you have a hardship, please complete an Inter District Transfer request form and attach a letter or an email stating the specific reasons for the request to interdistricttransfer@beaverton.k12.or.us.   Decisions will be made once Beaverton School District and the non-resident school district have reviewed.  If the transfer request is approved, the student will be approved through grade 12.  If the request is denied, the student should make plans to enroll into their boundary school.

 

The Washington County School District’s Inter-District Transfer window is May 1 – May 31, 2018. Final decisions will be communicated to parents by July 15, 2018.

 

Students must complete transfer paperwork at both resident and non-resident school district offices.

ADMINISTRATIVE STUDENT TRANSFERS


Administrative Student Transfers are available for Beaverton students wishing to attend school in another Beaverton school.  Student applications may be initiated at any time, at the student's home school, during the school year by a parent/guardian, eligible student or administrator.  Approval is the responsibility of the individual school administrator.  All administrative student transfers are valid for the current school year only.  All questions should be directed to the student's home school.  Administrative student transfers are provided for hardship cases only.

​​

School Attendance Areas
By Oregon State Law and Beaverton School District policy, students are assigned to a “home school” in their “home district” based on the legal resident address of their parent or legal guardian. A Beaverton School District Administrative Transfer is required to attend a school other than the home school; students may not attend another school without valid permission. Homeless students should contact their counselor or principal to see if they may qualify for Title X provisions.

​The Beaverton School District has also established attendance boundaries that provide clear feeder paths from elementary to middle to high schools. These allow for academic continuity within each feeder area and balanced enrollments across schools in the district. Your elementary home school determines the feeder path your student would take into middle or high school.

A transfer to a school outside of your home feeder path does not guarantee continuation to the next feeder level of your transfer school.

To confirm your assigned home school, please contact 503.356.4500.
