Inter-District Transfers

INTER-DISTRICT TRANSFERS FOR 2021-2022 WILL BEGIN MARCH 1, 2021

The Inter-district transfer process applies to those parents who would like their children to attend a school outside of their resident district (HUSD Board Policy 5117). Inter-district transfers must be approved by both districts prior to enrollment. Please see your resident school district for criteria. For HUSD's criteria, please read the information below.  The requested district has the right to assign inter-district transfer students to any school in the district. 

Cherrlyand Elementary

The transfer process begins at the school district of residence. If approved by the resident district, the requested district may then consider it.  Once an inter-district transfer has been approved by both districts and the student is enrolled in school, the student shall not have to reapply for an inter-district transfer except when transitioning from elementary to middle school or middle school to high school.  A school district of residence or a school district of enrollment shall not rescind existing inter-district transfer permits for 11 or 12 grade students.
