Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what school my student should attend?
Enrollment is determined by your neighborhood boundary area. If your student is not yet registered for school, please review the Corvallis School District’s school boundary area maps and input your street address in the top right search bar to find the correct school. You may also call the district administration office for assistance. School registration takes place in person, at your child’s school.

Can I transfer my child to a different school?

Parents may request a school transfer during the transfer window, between March 1-31. Transfer requests during the school year are reviewed on a case by case basis and in some cases, schools are at capacity and closed to transfer requests. Requests should be made at least ten days before the end of the grading period/semester. In most cases, unless specifically addressed in our policies, transportation to school outside your boundary neighborhood is the responsibility of the family.

When can my child register for classes?
Elementary students new to the district may enroll at their boundary area school at any time during regular office hours before school begins in the fall and at any time during the school year. Parents are asked to bring proof of their child’s age and address and a record of their immunizations. Middle and high school fall registration follows individual school schedules, typically August 21-27. Registration packets for returning high school students are not mailed and may be picked up at their school on specified dates. Visit the Student Enrollment page for details about getting started in Corvallis schools.

Where can I find my child’s bus schedule?
Bus information is available on the school district’s Bus Routes page and also will be posted at each school. In order for your child to ride the bus, registration is required.

What do I need to know about school meals?
Breakfast and lunch are served every day at school. Monthly menus and information about costs are available on the Food and Nutrition Services page.

What school supplies will my child need?
All recommended school supply lists are optional. If you are unable to provide supplies, they will be provided to your student at school.  Donations of supplies are also welcome. High school students should check with their individual teachers for a list of supplies they might need.

When do fall high school sports practices begin?
Fall sports teams (football, volleyball, cross-country and soccer)  at both high schools offer an optional conditioning week August 10-14. Fall sports practices and tryouts begin on August 17.

  • Student athletes must first be cleared for participation by turning in a signed emergency information card and a code of conduct form. Forms may be downloaded from the athletics section of each school’s website.
  • Athletic fees are $150 per student. The first and second OSAA sports fees are $150 each; a third sport costs $100.
