Inter-District Transfer

Students in classrooms

NVUSD begins accepting inter-district transfer applications on October 15, 2023 for the 2024-2025 school year. We will begin to place inter-district students in February 2024.

The inter-district application window for the 2023-2024 school year is closed.

What are the steps to the inter-district Process?

Step 1: Students must be released from their home district prior to starting in NVUSD. Please contact your home district to determine their timeline to sign inter-district transfer release forms.  It varies greatly from district to district. You should also concurrently request the most recent transcripts, report cards and include behaviors and attendance records.  

Step 2: You can start your interdistrict application with NVUSD at any time at nvusd.schoolmint.net. NVUSD is happy to answer questions and help with this process. Once all of your records except for the release is provided, we can process your interdistrict application, but can’t confirm space or placement until released by your prior district. Please note, that once your interdistrict application is approved, you will still need to complete an enrollment application as outlined in Step 4.  

 Step 3: If approved, the interdistrict release document will be signed as approved by NVUSD and returned to the family. If denied, the interdistrict release document will be signed as denied by NVUSD and returned to the family with a denial letter. The denial letter will identify the reason(s) for the denial as outlined in Policy 5117 Interdistrict Attendance and California Education Code 46600.2. The documentation of approval or denial will be sent to the family through the family's schoolmint account email.    

 Step 4: Approved families return to their enrollment account at nvusd.schoolmint.net and select out-of-district registration. The family uploads the approved interdistrict release document signed by NVUSD and all other required school registration documents. The Enrollment Center will contact the family to confirm placement.

Applications received after April 30 may not be placed until after the 10th day of school. 

  • The Superintendent or designee may approve or deny initial requests for interdistrict attendance permits due to limited district resources, overcrowding of school facilities at the relevant grade level, or other considerations that are not arbitrary. (BP/AR 5117 Interdistrict Attendance) Non arbitrary considerations include; continued disciplinary problems, failure to comply with school rules/policies, academic performance, continued unexcused absences/tardiness, and fraudulent interdistrict applications.
