District-to-District Transfers - OPEN May 1-31, 2019
If you live within the Gresham-Barlow School District and want to attend a school in another school district, you can request a release to transfer by using the form below.
If you live outside of Gresham-Barlow School District but wish to attend one of our schools, please contact your home district to request a release first.
Transfer request forms are available below, in the main office at any GBSD school, or the district office. Your completed form can be dropped off at any GBSD school, faxed to 503-261-4553, mailed to the district office at 1331 NW Eastman Pkwy, Gresham, OR 97030, or emailed to email@example.com.
You will be notified in writing after review of all requests. Release from your home district does not guarantee a transfer acceptance at another district. Your application will be reviewed and then forwarded to the district you are requesting. Both districts will notify you of their decision. If your request is approved, you do not need to apply for a release in subsequent years. Also, please note: kindergarten and first grade transfer requests may not be decided upon until late summer after elementary registration. For further information, contact the Gresham-Barlow School District Office at 503-261-4575.
In-District Transfers - OPEN FOR WAIT LIST
The Gresham-Barlow School District will begin accepting in-district transfer requests for the 2019-2020 school year during the month of March. If you live within the district and want your child to attend a Gresham-Barlow school outside of your attendance area, you need to request an in-district transfer. If your student currently has an in-district transfer and is moving from elementary to middle or middle to high, please submit a new request if you want them to attend a school outside of your attendance area.
If you missed the transfer request window during March, you can still submit a transfer request. However, your request will be put on a waiting list to be considered after all other transfer requests are reviewed.
Transfer request forms are available below, in the main office at any GBSD school, or the district office. Your completed form can be dropped off at any GBSD school, faxed to (503) 261-4553, mailed to the district office at 1331 NW Eastman Parkway, Gresham 97030, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you applied for a transfer for the 2019-20 school year, you will be notified in writing after review of all requests. Please note: kindergarten and first grade requests may not be decided upon until late summer after elementary registration. For further information, contact the Gresham-Barlow School District Office at 503-261-4550.
Open Enrollment Transfers - CLOSED
In the past, Open Enrollment was an additional enrollment option for students hoping to transfer between districts. However, 2018-19 was the last school year for students to transfer through open enrollment. Districts will not go through the open enrollment procedure in the spring of 2019 and cannot enroll students through open enrollment in 2019-20.
Any student who has transferred through open enrollment before this change remains a resident of the new district. ORS 339.133 contains language stating that this change does not affect the status of a person who transferred through open enrollment prior to the 2019-20 school year.
