There are three types of permits that SGUSD offers; they are and intra-district, inter-district acceptance, and inter-district release. Inter-District "permits" are formally called "Inter-District Attendance Transfer Requests." 

What is an Intra-District Permit?

Transfer from one SGUSD Elementary School to another SGUSD school (requires District approval).

The intra-district permit request window will open March 27, 2023 and closed May 5, 2023. Families will be notified after May 5, 2023 regarding placement. The button below will not work until March 27, 2023. 

Intra-permits are approved space permitting during the window at the requested school site.  Priority is given to students whose enrollment is complete. Students accepted into a DLI program who live in SGUSD do not have to complete the intra-district permit.

What is an Inter-District Acceptance Permit?

Acceptance into an SGUSD School when the student belongs to a District other than the SGUSD. Requires District approved release from the resident School District to begin. Students accepted into the Dual Language Immersion program who live in a different district must be released from the home district first. Completion of a SGUSD Transfer Request is also required and must be approved by the Student Support Director.
What is an Inter-District Release Permit?
Release from a SGUSD school to attend another school District. Requires District Approval.

Remember, a release from your district of residence must be obtained before applying.


Please see the SGUSD's Inter District Transfer Policy and reasons for which SGUSD may grant a release (including the documentation that is necessary for each reason). 

Families requesting an inter-district transfer due to Child Care should submit this Childcare Affidavit to Student Support. SGUSD Board Policy requires that childcare providers be licensed.

Incomplete applications will not be processed.
