Eureka, Ca., (KIEM)- Next fall may still be a few months away, but if you’re considering transferring your student from one district to another, the deadline to get the process started is fast approaching.
Humboldt County School District superintendents have reached an agreement on a county wide policy for interdistrict attendance and student transfer. This new policy will require parents to participate in “reasonable enrollment activities” to make sure their aware of programs and services in their district of residence.
If families chose to transfer their student, they must submit a form no later than February 1st to both their District of Residence (DOR) and their District of Choice (DOC). This gives the districts time to account for changes in enrollment in the coming fall semester.
“This agreement and process honors parent choice while giving schools reasonable enrollment predictability,” states Dr. Chris Hartley, Superintendent of Humboldt County schools. “We have outstanding teachers and schools throughout Humboldt County and each and every one provides unique strengths and opportunities for students.”
