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.

    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.”

    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 summer. If you are moving out of 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. Must also meet behavior and attendance expectations.


    Please Note: Your city of residence does not define your school district.
