2019-2020 Interdistrict Transfer Process
The Beaverton School District’s window for receiving Interdistrict transfers for the 2019-2020 school year is April 1 – May 15, 2019. Interdistrict Transfers are for students who want to attend school in another school district. Final decisions will be communicated to parents by June 28, 2019. Students must complete transfer paperwork at both resident and non-resident school district offices.
There are two ways to apply for an Interdistrict Transfer:
1.) The Beaverton School District’s School Board has agreed to accept Interdistrict Transfers at the schools listed below for the 2019-2020 school year. If more requests are submitted than slots available, an equitable lottery will be conducted.

2.) The Beaverton School District will review Interdistrict 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). When considering Interdistrict Hardship Transfer requests, the Beaverton School District will use the following criteria:
- Capacity at the receiving school
- Hardship is defined as the student:
- Is being impacted by a parent or guardian’s military deployment
- Is experiencing instability related to homelessness or foster care placement
- Has a documented medical condition that necessitates a transfer
- Is impacted by the death of a parent
- There is severe financial hardship for the family
- Is involved in a documented case of severe harassment, intimidation, bullying or cyber-bullying
A hardship is NOT a preference for an academic program or activities offered at another school.
If you feel you have a hardship, please complete an Interdistrict Transfer request form and attach a letter stating the specific reasons for the request. Hardship requests can be emailed, to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to 503.356.4415 or dropped off at the Beaverton School District Office, 16550 SW Merlo Road, Beaverton.
All decisions will be made once Beaverton School District and the non-resident school district have reviewed. If the Interdistrict Transfer request is approved, into or out of the Beaverton School District, the student will be approved through grade 12. If the request is denied, the student should make plans to enroll into their boundary attendance school.
Mid-School Year Resident Student Move:
- Students who move out of the Beaverton School District, during the 2018-2019 school year, should complete a Mid School Year Resident Student Move form at the school where the student is currently attending. Students may stay at their school until the end of the school year.*
- Students who move out of the Beaverton School District, during the summer, after completing the 2018-2019 school year, should complete a Mid School Year Resident Student Move form at the school where the student was attending prior to the summertime move. Students may stay at their school until the end of the 2019-2020 school year.*
* If a student wishes to return to the Beaverton School District, they will be required to apply for an Interdistrict Transfer during the designated window in the Spring. There are no guarantees for student placement. Students must meet behavior and attendance expectations as stated below. Contact your student's school if you have questions about Mid-School Year Resident Student Moves.
