Student Transfer Overview

Families have a variety of reasons for requesting a school transfer and in some cases, we may initiate a transfer to place students with specific educational needs at a school outside their neighborhood boundary school.

Mid-year transfers are discouraged but in some cases may be granted on a case-by-case basis beginning with building administrators. Parents may request a school transfer during the annual transfer window. In most cases, unless specifically addressed in our policies, transportation to a school outside your boundary neighborhood is the responsibility of the family. Review the Corvallis School District’s Transfer Policy and Procedures here.

  • If the number of students seeking a transfer exceeds the number of spaces available, an equitable lottery is used and a wait list is created.
  • Families may choose just one school for their transfer request.
  • Transfer requests during the school year are reviewed on a case by case basis. Requests should be made at least ten days before the end of the grading period/semester.
  • Parents of entering kindergarten students living within the Corvallis School District boundaries must first register at their neighborhood school before requesting a transfer to a different school.
  • Transfer students must meet OSAA Transfer Rules in order to participate in OSAA athletics and activities.
  • Families approved for a non-resident transfer must complete a Inter-District Transfer Form from their home district before attending Corvallis schools.

Transferring out of the Corvallis School District

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) requires that school district’s receive a release approval from the resident school district before accepting an incoming student transfer. Parents wishing to transfer their student to another school district must complete an Interdistrict Transfer Out Form.
