• Interdistrict Transfers (in & out of MVUSD to/from other districts)

    Parents who reside in other school districts may request an Interdistrict Transfer if they choose to have their children attend school in MVUSD and parents of students living within the boundaries of MVUSD may use an Interdistrict Transfer to attend another district.  Board Policy and Regulation 5117  and Education Code 46600- 46611 outline the reasons for which a transfer may be approved and the appeal process.

    Interdistrict Transfer Guidelines and Information

    • Approvals/denials of Interdistrict Transfers are made by Student Support Department staff and not by school administrators. Schools will not accept or process any Interdistrict Transfer forms prior to approval.
    • Approvals for choice are subject to annual renewal.
    • All approvals are subject to space availability and students meeting behavioral and achievement expectations.
    • Upon the recommendation of the principal, the superintendent or his designee may revoke an Interdistrict Transfer at any time for continued problems with attendance, behavior or academics.
    • A student attending on an Interdistrict Transfer who commits an expellable offense will be subject to revocation of the transfer permit and MVUSD will, in most cases, pursue the expulsion process. If the expulsion decision is upheld, the transfer will be revoked at that time. Even if the parent withdraws the student from the district, the district may continue to pursue the expulsion process.
    • An Interdistrict Transfer may be approved for the remainder of the year only to allow a student to complete a school year at the former school, subject to space availability.
