  • The Gresham-Barlow School District will accept Inter-District Transfer requests based on the timeline below. 

    Inter-District Transfer Timeline for the 2021-22 school year:

    • Inter-District Transfer requests to enroll in a neighboring school district are accepted May 1-31, 2021 via online application.
    • Inter-District Transfer into a Gresham-Barlow school requires an approved release from your neighborhood school district. They will notify Gresham-Barlow if they release your student to us and we will follow up with an email to the enrolling parent with the next steps.
    • All Inter-District transfer decisions will be finalized by August 13th, 2021.

In-District Transfers - CLOSED

  • The Gresham-Barlow School District accepts in-district transfer requests for the upcoming school year during the month of March only. This type of transfer is for families who already live within the Gresham-Barlow district and want their child to attend a Gresham-Barlow school outside of their attendance area. If a student currently has an in-district transfer and is moving from elementary to middle or middle to high, a new request needs to be submitted during this time.
    If you applied for a transfer for the 2021-22 school year, you will be notified in writing after review of all requests - elementary and middle will not be before May 1. Please note: kindergarten and first grade requests may not be decided upon until late summer after elementary registration.

    For further information, contact Jade Joseph by calling 503-261-4575 or emailing joseph11@gresham.k12.or.us.

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.
