    Intra-district Transfer Process

    Any parent or guardian of a student residing within the Colton Joint Unified School District boundaries may apply for a transfer to any District school. This is done by submitting an Intradistrict transfer request.  Please see below for conditions of approval.  Please see Interdistrict Transfers if you live outside CJUSD boundaries

    Transfer Window Application Period:
    JANUARY 16, 2018 through March 1, 2018

    Intradistrict Transfer Requests Received January 16 through March 1, 2018:
    Intradistrict transfer requests are granted based on space availability. All students MUST be enrolled in their home school site for computer purposes before an Intradistrict transfer request can be completed. If the number of applications received exceeds the spaces available, a lottery will be held to determine which applications will be approved and the order in which the remaining students will be placed on a waiting list. (Education Code 35160.5)

     
    Intradistrict Transfer Requests Received After March 2, 2018 for the 2018/2019 school year:
    Intradistrict transfer requests are granted on space availability.  In the event requests exceed capacity at the school or a specific grade level within the school, approvals will be determined by a lottery noted above.  Therefore, applications received after March 2, 2018, are added to a secondary wait list determined by a random drawing (lottery). However, the District may also enroll students from the Interdistrict List to balance educational programs and enrollment numbers.   Applications received from March 2, 2018 through September 7, 2018 will be placed in a separate lottery.  Transfer applications received after September 7, 2018 may be considered based upon space availability after all other transfers have been processed.
