Transfer Process

  • Contact your resident district to apply for a release.

    We must have a release from your resident school district even if your student has never attended.

    Requests for transfers will only be considered pending for 45 days. If you have not submitted the paperwork to the boundary District for approval to release/attend within that time frame, your requests to release/attend TTSD will be withdrawn to render these spots available for other students.

    There are two main types of student transfers.  

    • In-District - Transfers between schools within TTSD 
    • Inter-District - Transfers between TTSD and another school district

    The following District Policies are related to transfers and school assignments:

    Transfers are required for students to attend a school other than their “Neighborhood boundary school.”  A student’s “Neighborhood boundary school” is determined by the District’s “Neighborhood boundary attendance area”, which is based on the legal address of the student’s residence, as provided by their parent or legal guardian. Students must have District approval to attend a school other than their “ Neighborhood boundary school.”

    Please review this Quick Reference Guide for answers to any In-District Transfer Process questions you may have.
    Please review this Quick Reference Guide for answers to any Inter-District Transfer Process questions you may have.

    Students experiencing homelessness should contact their school counselor or principal to see if they qualify for Title X  provisions.

    Allows TTSD students to move out of the district during the school year or during the summer. If you are moving out of the district, inform your students' school and fill out the mid year/summer move form. 

    Please Note:

    • Not applicable to students who move OUT of Oregon.
    • Students are required to apply for an Inter-District Transfer if they wish to continue attending TTSD for the following school year.
      There are NO guarantees for student placement. Students must also meet behavior and attendance expectations.
    • Your city of residence does not define your school district.

    Hardship Transfer Requests
    Available after our 50 in /50 out slots are full.
    "Hardship" means any of the following:

    1. The student is impacted by a parent or guardian's military deployment;
    2. The student is experiencing instability related to homelessness or foster care placement;
    3. The student has a documented medical condition that necessitates transfer;
    4. Death of a student's parent;
    5. The student does not have access to safe and affordable childcare in the resident district; or
    6. The student is involved in a documented case of severe harassment, intimidation, bullying or cyberbullying.

    Terms of Acceptance
    All transfers are contingent upon meeting behavior and attendance expectations. Failure to meet these expectations will result in the transfer being revoked and the student returning to their resident district.
    Expectations include:

    1) On-time and full-day attendance of 92% or greater;

    2) No more than one suspension per academic year, no suspension of, or greater than, five days;

    3) No expulsion

    A district may consider a transfer request outside of the district’s Inter-District transfer policy and procedures where hardship exists.
