Interdistrict Transfer Timelines
  • We begin accepting interdistrict transfer requests for the next school year on March 1st.
  • For current school year requests, parents will receive a transfer decision notification within 30 calendar days from the date of receipt of the request.
  • For future school year requests, parents will receive a transfer decision notification as soon as possible, but no later than 14 calendar days following the beginning of the school year  for which enrollment is sought.
  • For new interdistrict transfer applications, parents must complete the enrollment process within 10 business days of receiving an interdistrict transfer approval notification.
  • Failure of the parent to meet any timelines established by the district shall be deemed abandonment of the request.
Annual Interdistrict Transfer Renewal Process

After receiving an initial interdistrict transfer approval, parents must renew the interdistrict transfer each spring. Parents will receive an email from Student Services, requesting interdistrict transfer renewal. This process uses the same interdistrict transfer request form, from the resident school district, that was used to request initial enrollment.

An interdistrict attendance permit may be revoked or rescinded  under the following conditions.

If the student:

  • Is excessively tardy or absent from school or is brought to school excessively early or left excessively late
  • Fails to uphold appropriate behavior standards
  • Fails to make appropriate academic efforts

Or if false or misleading information was provided or other conditions occur that would render continuance unadvisable.

The Interdistrict Transfer Request Process

Interdistrict Transfers to SRVUSD in three steps

Interdistrict Transfers to SRVUSD Infographic Detail

A parent or legal guardian of a student residing outside of the SRVUSD school boundary may request a transfer for that student to this district from another by obtaining an Approved Interdistrict Transfer Request form from their resident school district office. Please be sure to hold your student's enrollment space at your resident school district until you receive an official transfer decision notification from our Student Services department.

Please go to your resident school district office and obtain an inter district transfer approval to SRVUSD. Your school district will send the request to our offices to be reviewed. Please send the required documents listed below via fax to 925-837-2605 or scan to our Student Services staff.

  • Transcripts/Grades
  • Discipline Records from previous school
  • Attendance Records from previous school

Approval will be granted based on space availability and the review of the above documentation.  If approval is granted, school placement is at the sole discretion of the Student Services Director and department. Status will not be available prior to official notification.  

If approval is granted, you will be notified by email to begin the SRVUSD enrollment process.  Information regarding this process can be found on the Enrollment page of our district website.

Interdistrict Transfer Appeal Information

At times school districts deny a request to transfer to another district. Parents have the right to appeal this denial. For information regarding appealing a denied interdistrict transfer please follow the instructions on the denial letter from your district and appeal first to your resident school district office. As a second step, if needed, you can contact your resident county office of education. You have the right to appeal a school district's final decision to the county board of education within 30 days of the date of the final denial of transfer. Below are the links to Alameda and Contra Costa County Offices of Education:
