PUSD Transfer Policies
The schools of this district shall be operated for the benefit of the children residing in the district with such exceptions as are permitted by law and District policy. The Board of Education may enter into inter-district transfer agreements with other school districts regarding the enrollment of non-resident students only when specific ‘Categories of Eligible Non-resident Students’ and ‘Limitations of Inter-district Transfer’ conditions are met as defined in Administrative Regulations (AR 5117). The specific eligibility categories and limitations may be reviewed on AR 5117 or available by contacting the Superintendent’s Office at (510)594-2614, 760 Magnolia Avenue, Piedmont, CA 94611.
The Superintendent reserves the right to revoke any inter-district transfer agreement at any time. Students who live outside Piedmont and are authorized to transfer from another school district to the PUSD must arrange for their paperwork to be transferred to the Office of the Superintendent for review.
The Board of Education may enter into inter-district transfer agreements for the transfer of resident students to other districts when the student’s needs cannot be met by the programs of the Piedmont Unified School District.
Intra-district transfers in Piedmont may take place between the three elementary schools and also between the Piedmont High School and Millennium High School. At the elementary level, a Request Form for Intra-District Transfer is available from the Superintendent’s Office and the school Principal’s office. The form should be completed and returned to the school principal’s office that serves the zone in which the student lives. For intra-district transfers at the high school level, please contact the site administrator.
The Board of Education has the authority to maintain appropriate racial and ethnic balances among district schools and shall take such balances into account in approving or denying intra-district transfer applications.
A student may be assigned to a school or program if the student requires a legally mandated program or accommodation which is available at that school or program. A student may be assigned to a school or program for disciplinary reasons or for the protection of the health and safety of that student or other students or employees of the district.
