SUHSD Intra-District Transfer Information

The Sweetwater Union High School District supports the neighborhood school philosophy.  School boundaries are established for every district school and students are assigned to a home school.  Students who live in a neighborhood school’s attendance area receive priority to attend their home school.

To view the designated home school for your home address, go to and click on the My School Locator blue box.

The district realizes that there are valid reasons for students to be permitted to attend a school other than their home school.  It is important to note that all of the middle and high schools in the district follow the same rigorous common core state curriculum.

The parents or legal guardians of a student may request an intra-district transfer from the home school to another district school by completing an Intra-District transfer application. These applications are available at the Student Support Services office. No other documentation is needed during this time.

For the 2017 – 2018 school year, the window to apply for an intra-district transfer begins on February 27, 2017 and ends Friday, April 7, 2017.

Approval of an intra-district transfer request is contingent on space availability at the requested school.  Based on projected capacity, the following schools are closed to Intra District Transfer Requests for the 2017 – 2018 school year: Chula Vista High, Eastlake High, Rancho Del Rey Middle, Olympian High, Otay Ranch High, and Sweetwater High School.  Please note that all Intra-District transfers may affect athletic eligibility for grades 9-12.

There are four categories under which a parent can request a student intra-district transfer from the home school to another school in the district. These categories are Family Togetherness, Continuances, Unique Curriculum Programs, and Voluntary Transfers. Feeder School transfers are no longer automatic transfers. Parents/guardians will need to submit an application under the categories eligible for transfers.
