IntraDistrict Transfers

Applications will be accepted beginning 2/1/2021

An IntraDistrict Transfer is a school transfer within the La Habra City School District boundaries.Although IntraDistrict Transfers provide the opportunity to choose a school other than school of residence, it is important to note that under current District Board Policy AR 5116.1 an IntraDistrict transfer application may be denied for any one of the following reasons:

  • Actual student enrollment at a school may not fall below or exceed previously established capacity.
  • No student currently residing in the attendance area of his/her assigned school shall be displaced from his/her assigned school by students transferring from outside the school’s attendance area.
  • Students exercising the option to transfer to an alternate school within our District must provide their own transportation, except for the Dual Immersion program. · A request to attend a school within LHCSD, other than the school of residence may be denied based upon documented attendance issues.
  • A request to attend a school within LHCSD, other than the school of residence may be denied based upon documented misconduct of the student at another District.
  • In addition, once a student has been approved to their designated school of choice, that school becomes their designated school of attendance (home school).

Although IntraDistrict space is available at every campus, it is anticipated that some schools may have a limited number of spaces available in certain grade levels. In any instance, where the number of IntraDistrict transfer requests exceeds the space available, the filling of spaces will be determined by the date and time of the applications submitted. Requests that are not selected will be placed on a waiting list.

IntraDistrict transfers are for families who reside within the attendance boundary area of La Habra City School District, and wish to request a school other than their assigned school.

Completed applications must be submitted to the District Office in person or via email at [email protected].
