In-District Transfers - CLOSED

  • The Gresham-Barlow School District's in-district transfer request process is closed for the 2023-2024 school year.

    If you've already submitted a request, you will be notified by email after all requests have been reviewed. Please note: some requests may not be decided upon until late summer after more registrations are received. This is most common with Kindergarten and 1st grade requests.

    For future reference, this process takes place between March 1st to August 1st each year. This type of transfer is for families who already live within the Gresham-Barlow district and want their student to attend another Gresham-Barlow school outside of their attendance area. If your student currently has an in-district transfer and will be moving from elementary to middle or middle to high, please submit a new request during this time period as well.

    For any questions or further information, contact Jade Joseph by calling 503-261-4575 or emailing

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.
