NVUSD welcomes applications for students who wish to transfer from another district into NVUSD. 

Interdistrict Transfer

Out of district families are welcome to apply as the method for non NVUSD resident students to attend NVUSD schools.  An Interdistrict Transfer request is covered under Board Policy 5117.  

NVUSD posted information (Education Code 46600.1, 46600.2)

Families may complete applications throughout the current school year for the following school year

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.

Families may appeal the District’s decision by filing a written request of appeal with the Napa County Office of Education within 30 days. (California Education Code 46600.2.) 

Failure of a parent/guardian to meet any timelines established by the district shall be deemed an abandonment of the request. 

Timeline include: For an interdistrict transfer request received by the district 15 or fewer calendar days before the commencement of instruction in the school year for which the transfer is sought, the district will notify the parent/guardian of its final decision within 30 calendar days from the date the request was received. For an interdistrict transfer request received by the district more than 15 days before the commencement of instruction in the school year for which the interdistrict transfer is sought, the district will notify the parent/guardian of its final decision as soon as possible, but no later than 14 calendar days after the commencement of instruction in the school year for which transfer is sought.

Considerations for revoking NVUSD interdistrict transfers include; continued disciplinary problems, failure to comply with school rules/policies, academic performance, continued unexcused absences/tardiness, and fraudulent interdistrict applications.


What are the steps to the inter-district process?

Step 1: The family requests an interdistrict release document from their child's school district. The family also requests most recent transcripts or report cards to include behavior and attendance. 
 
Step 2: The family completes the NVUSD interdistrict application online at nvusd.schoolmint.net. The family uploads the signed release form from their child's school district and all required documents.
 
Step 3: Then NVUSD reviews the request. 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 out-of-district registration will be changed to a NVUSD school and the NVUSD school will contact the family.  

Can an interdistrict transfer be revoked? Yes, an interdistict transfer permit may be revoked. The parent/guardian acknowledges this during the completion of an interdistrict application.
