Interdistrict Attendance Permit
Interdistrict Transfer Process
Parents and guardians who do not live within the Big Lagoon district boundaries but who wish for their child to attend Big Lagoon School are required to file an Interdistrict Transfer Attendance Request form at their district of residence during the priority enrollment window, which is December 1, 2021 - February 1, 2022. The district of residence may require that you participate in an enrollment activity such as visiting a school or speaking with an administrator. This allows you to become familiar with your neighborhood school and make a more informed school choice. If you have more than one student attending Big Lagoon, you will need to file a separate form for each student.
Families who live within the Big Lagoon boundaries and wish for their child to attend school in another district will submit the Interdistrict Transfer Attendance form first to Big Lagoon for approval. The form will then be transferred to the district of proposed enrollment for their consideration.
Please note the following:
Only new requests submitted between December 1st and February 1st are assured of approval by the district of residence, subject to reasonable enrollment activities.
The failure of a parent/guardian to meet any timelines established by the district shall be deemed an abandonment of the request.
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 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 the transfer is sought.
In addition to any bases listed on an interdistrict transfer permit, the district may revoke a permit for:
- Behavior leading to suspension and/or expulsion
- Parent/guardian providing false information pertaining to the interdistrict transfer request
- Truancy or chronic absenteeism as defined by Education Code 48260 and 60901(c)(1)
- Unsatisfactory academic performance defined as lack of progress towards mastery of grade level standards due to failure to complete work or other circumstances within the student’s control
- Lack of capacity, such as a student requiring a program that the district does not offer and/or
- Any other lawful, non-arbitrary basis for the district to conclude it would be in the best interest of the student, the student’s school, or the district for the interdistrict transfer permit to be revoked.
