In-District Transfers for 2015-2016 -  April 1-30. Parents may apply for their student to attend a district school other than their attendance area school.  Application forms are posted here and will be available in each school. Applications have to reach the district office by April 30th. Please read the second page of the application for details about transfers.
District to District Transfers for 2015-2016 - May 1-15 
  • GBSD will release up to 30 resident students to attend schools in other districts for the 2015-16 school year. The application for release to attend outside of GBSD will be available May 1-15.  GBSD will forward your paperwork to your requested district, as both districts must agree to the transfer request, and you will be notified. If we receive more than 30 applications there will be a lottery drawing.
  • Up to 72 non-resident students will be allowed to enroll in GBSD schools for the 2015-16 school year. Parents need to contact their resident district to begin the transfer process. 
  • Students who move during the school year to a home located in a different school district do not need permission to remain in their current school through the end of the year. However, they do need to receive both a release from their new resident district and approval from their current district in order for the transfer to extend to the next school year.
  • Permission for standard transfer in or out of GBSD is based on priorities established by the GBSD school board, space availability and random lottery numbers. There is a set timeframe for applying for inter-district transfers, and late applications can be denied. The timelines are posted here and prominently on the form. 
  • Releases out of GBSD are good through the highest grade of the approved school. Transfers into GBSD remain in effect through the highest grade of the approved school. For example, if a child is given permission to attend a K-5 school beginning in 1st grade, the family does not have to ask again to remain in that school, but does need to make a new request to attend a GBSD school for 6th grade.
  •  Transfers can be revoked if a student does not meet attendance or behavior standards, and families always have the right to return to their home school in their resident district. 
  • Inter-district transfer laws are complex and have changed considerably over the past several years. Feel free to call the office of the Deputy Superintendent (503-261-4577) at any time to learn how current rules apply to your particular circumstance.
