Interdistrict Transfer Application Policy

The South Bay Union School District is clearly a school of choice in the Eureka area. Approximately 30% of our students reside outside of our district boundaries. Student achievement, as well as student enrollment have seen continued growth over the last several years. As a result of our recent successes, SBUSD is reaching our student carrying capacity. Simply put, if we continue to grow at our current rate, we will have too many students and not enough classrooms.

Thursday, February 5, 2015, the SBUSD Governing Board updated our Interdistrict Student Acceptance board policies and administrative regulations. Changes to SBUSD Interdistrict Agreement policies and regulations are detailed below:

The Superintendent shall by January 31 of each year, estimate how much excess capacity may exist to accept out-of-district students for the preceding school year.

2015-16 Interdistrict Carrying Capacity by Grade-Level

  • Transitional Kindergarten – 6 out of district seats available
  • Kindergarten – 9 out of district seats available
  • 1st Grade - FULL
  • 2nd Grade - 13 out of district seats available
  • 3rd Grade - FULL
  • 4th Grade - FULL
  • 5th Grade - FULL
  • 6th Grade - FULL

When the projected enrollment of a school exceeds the school's published capacity, the school will be declared "closed" to out-of-district students.

Interdistrict Transfer Application Process

The District shall communicate and follow the District-adopted timeline for accepting and responding to transfer applications.

  • Window 1: February 1 – February 28
  • Window 2: March 1 – March 30
  • Window 3: August 30 – Current School Year

Order of Consideration will be based on date/time of district receipt

A non-biased lottery system will be established once capacity has been reached

Applications will be considered in accordance with the application window periods in which the application is submitted.

Continuing interdistrict transfer applications will fill available slots before new applications.

Continuing transfer applicants who do not meet the application timeline will be required to reapply as new applicants.

Priority admittance will be given to siblings of students who are currently enrolled in the district, provided available capacity exists within the grade level.

Accepted new applicants must confirm their intention to attend the school by returning their completed transfer contract to the District Office according to the District-adopted timeline. Failure to do so will result in cancelation of the accepted transfer application.

If all available slots are filled for the next school year, a lottery system will determine the order in which approved applications will fill slots that open up.

If multiple application windows are made available for new transfer applications, all applicants in the lottery system from the previous window will be considered to fill available slots before those who applied in a subsequent application window.

Current school year transfer applications will be approved on a space-available basis.
