Inter District Transfers

What is an inter district transfer?
An inter district transfer is when a student requests to attend a high school within a different school district from where they live.

How do I transfer my student to another school district?
Applications from the Antelope Valley Union High School District to another school district may be obtained in the AVUHSD Student Services office located at 548 W. Lancaster Blvd., Suite #102 in Lancaster, Ca 93534. Upon review and approval by the Assistant Superintendent, the form may be mailed or hand-delivered by the parent/guardian to the school district requested. Approval by the AVUHSD does not necessarily indicate automatic approval by the school district requested.

How do I transfer my student to the Antelope Valley Union High School District?
  • Inter district transfer applications from another high school district to AVUHSD should be obtained from the high school district of residence.
  • Upon approval by the high school district of residence, the form may be mailed or hand-delivered by the parent/guardian to the AVUHSD Student Services office located at 548 W. Lancaster Blvd., Suite #102, Lancaster, Ca 93534. The form may also be faxed to (661) 949-6292.
  • The deadline to submit inter district transfer applications is typically in March. Exceptions to the deadline may be made if the student is requesting a renewal and is already attending the school requested, or if the family has recently moved from AVUHSD to another school district and the student is already attending the school requested, or if the student has a sibling who is currently attended the school requested and will continue at that school for the specified school year.

Do inter district transfer applications need to be renewed each year?
Inter district transfer applications no longer need to be renewed each year for most school districts within Los Angeles County.
