The Los Alamitos Unified School District is accepting a limited number of interdistrict transfer students in Transitional Kindergarten through 10th grade for the 2018-19 school year (new 10th grade interdistrict permits must enroll by the first day of school).

    Accepting Interdistrict Transfer Agreements is a year-to-year decision and can change from one year to the next. There are limited openings in all of our award-winning schools. Los Alamitos Unified School District will begin processing Interdistrict Transfer Agreements for the 2018-19 school year on March 5, 2018. All permit agreements must be received by the District office and are date stamped when received. Permit agreements will not be date stamped prior to March 5, 2018.

    Students who attend Los Alamitos Unified School District schools on an interdistrict permit agreement must maintain satisfactory attendance and citizenship while enrolled. Failure to maintain satisfactory attendance and/or citizenship will result in the permit agreement being revoked. 
    The District performs an annual review of all interdistrict permits to ensure all student information is current and correct.  Changes in a student's educational services may require the student to reapply for a new interdistrict permit through their home school district. 
    The District makes every effort to maintain a student's enrollment at their assigned school, however, if enrollment is impacted at a particular school site, a student on interdistrict permit may be reassigned to a new school  within the District where enrollment is not impacted.

    K-8 Interdistrict Permit Agreements

    K-8 Interdistrict Transfer Agreements are accommodated on a first-come, first-serve basis provided space availability and the student applying for the interdistrict transfer meets the satisfactory attendance and citizenship eligibility requirements.

    9th and 10th grade Interdistrict Permit Agreements

    A limited number of new 9th and 10th grade Interdistrict Transfer Agreements will be accepted for the 2018-19 school year. All new 9thand 10th grade Interdistrict Transfer Agreements submitted by Friday, March 30, 2018, who meet the satisfactory attendance and citizenship eligibility requirements, will be placed in a lottery (we anticipate fewer than 20 openings total). Interdistrict Transfer Agreements entered into the lottery must submit all required supporting documents by March 30, 2018.

    Interdistrict Transfer Agreements will be accepted after March 30, 2018, based on space availability and may be entered into a new lottery.
