Permit agreements will not be date stamped prior to March 15, 2017.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.
