• Interdistrict Transfer Requests
    If you do not live within our district boundaries, you must contact your district of residence to initiate the transfer process. 

    Washington Union School District begins accepting new interdistrict transfer requests January 1st of each year.

    • First, contact your district of residency to apply for an interdistrict transfer. Only your home district can "release" your student to attend school in another district. Each district operates on a different time frame. Please contact your home district for full details.

    • Next, provide us with a copy of the application once it has been approved from your home district. Your student will not be placed on our waiting list until this has been received. 

    • If your application is approved, you can begin the Enrollment procedure. Approvals are usually granted between March and May. The specific time frame will vary year to year depending on enrollment numbers and class configurations.
