District-to-District Transfers - OPEN

  • The Gresham-Barlow School District will accept Inter-District Transfer requests for the next school year (2022-2023) per these guidelines:

    Transfer Out of Gresham-Barlow Schools:
    Parents or guardians requesting an inter-district transfer to a neighboring school district may apply online May 1-31, 2022. Applications will be considered in the order received, and we will notify parents via email once a decision has been made. If approved, we will also inform the requested school district in writing, and they will contact you with the next steps.

    Transfer Into Gresham-Barlow Schools:
    Parents or guardians seeking a transfer into the Gresham-Barlow School District must obtain an inter-district transfer release from your neighborhood school district. Check their website to learn about their application process. If approved, we will contact you in writing with the next steps.

    • Due to large class sizes, Gresham-Barlow is not accepting applications into our middle schools for the 2022-23 school year.
    • Requests to enroll in a Gresham-Barlow elementary school are reviewed in August before the new school year.
    • Seniors who have moved from our attendance area and wish to graduate from their Gresham-Barlow high school must have an inter-district transfer release from the neighborhood school district no later than August 15th.

    For more information, please contact inter-district-transfers@gresham.k12.or.us.

In-District Transfers - OPEN

  • The Gresham-Barlow School District is now accepting in-district transfer requests for the 2022-2023 school year. 

    If you live within the Gresham-Barlow 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.

    You will be notified by email after review of all requests. Please note: kindergarten and first grade requests may not be decided upon until late summer after more residential registrations have been processed.

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 cannot enroll students through open enrollment for future school years.

    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.
