* There are Two Types of Student Transfers * 

Interdistrict Transfer
(Out of district)

1.) INTERDISTRICT transfers are from one DISTRICT to another DISTRICT. Due to the passage of Assembly Bill 2444 in 2010, parents who wish their child to remain at the same school for which the previous transfer was approved no longer need to complete a new application form for the next year.

*** NEW INCOMING INTERDISTRICT TRANSFER REQUESTS - Parents/students who wish to attend AUSD but live in another school district must first complete the Application for Interdistrict Attendance Permit (Form #341-SS) and obtain a signature of approval from their district of residence before submitting the application to LGSD.

Intradistrict Transfer
(Between schools in the district)

2.) INTRADISTRICT transfers are from one SCHOOL to another SCHOOL within the Alpine Union School District.

NOTE: Incomplete applications will be returned and will need to be resubmitted with all required documents.
