Permits for specialized academic programs are subject to space availability and may have a longer response time.

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.

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.
