Alhambra Unified School District Transfer Permits

 
INTRADistrict Permits: Within the boundaries of the Alhambra Unified School District.
  1. An INTRA district Permit can be completed and submitted online. Access to the online permit system is through the Alhambra Unified School District or at www.ausd.us/permit/

  2. Completed permits will go to the school of residence for review.  Pay particular attention to the documentation required (uploaded) for each specified reason for the permit.  Documents must be in PDF/JPG format. The online permit must be completed and documentation for the reason for the permit must be uploaded through the District’s website.

  3. The Principal of the school of residence may choose to meet the family to discuss the reason for the request.  The Principal at the school of residence approves or denies the permit request. The parent will be notified of the approval or denial of the permit.

  4. If the school of residence has released the student, the Principal of the requested school may choose to meet the family to discuss the reason for the request, and review and sign the permit contract.  The Principal of the requested school makes a determination about the approval based on the satisfactory academic grades, attendance, behavior and the availability of space. The Principal of the requested school approves or denies the permit.  

  5. The parent will be notified through email of the decision.  In the event that parent is not satisfied with the decision of the permit, the parent may choose to schedule an appeal meeting with the Director of Student Support Services.

The requirements include satisfactory academic grades, attendance, behavior, the availability of space, and cooperation of the parent or guardian with the school/district officials. If student/parent/guardian fails to meet these requirements, the permit may be revoked.

  7. Revoked permits cannot be appealed.

INTERDistrict Permit:
To request enrollment at an Alhambra Unified School when you reside outside of the Alhambra Unified School District:
  1. Family must obtain a release from the school district of residence. Alhambra Unified School District is NOT an Allen Bill District. Should the request be made based on Parent Employment, a release from the district of residence is still required. The district will deem an application incomplete if the release is not uploaded.

  2. Parents must upload the release of the INTERdistrict permit application with the latest report card/transcript for High School students.  The report card should contain academic information, attendance, and behavior/citizenship.

  3. The Principal of the requested school will make a determination to either approve or deny the permit and the parent/guardian will be notified via email.  In the event that the parent disagrees with the determination, the parent may choose to schedule an appeal meeting with the Director of Student Support Services.

  4. Note that good grades, good attendance, good behavior and the availability of space and a continued effort on the part of the parent or guardian to cooperate with the school/district officials are conditions to receive or continue a permit.

 
You live within the boundaries of the Alhambra Unified School District, but you wish to attend a school outside the Alhambra Unified School District:
  1. Complete and submit an online INTER District Permit/Release.

  2. The permit application must be completed with required documents that confirm and support the reason for the permit request. Documents supporting the request must be uploaded for the permit to be processed.

Dual Immersion Program (DI) Permits


Families that have been accepted into the Dual Immersion program at Northrup or Fremont Schools will receive an email indicating conditional acceptance to the program.

Students conditionally accepted into the program who reside within AUSD MUST complete the registration process at their school of residence and provide evidence of Dual Immersion acceptance. The Elementary Education Division will complete all the intra-district transfer.

Students conditionally accepted into the program who reside outside of AUSD MUST obtain an approved inter-district permit release from their district of residence. Once these families obtained the district of residence permit release, they will submit the AUSD Inter-district transfer permit with the permit release. If approved, the student may complete the registration process at Northrup or Fremont School.


Limited Provisional Admission

AB 2826 would make a pupil eligible for provisional admission to a school district of proposed enrollment only upon providing reasonable evidence that a final decision for a request for interdistrict transfer is pending either with the school district of residence, the school district of proposed enrollment, or the county board of education.
