Transfer Process and Policies
Intra-District Transfers (during the Open Enrollment window)
Information about the MVLA Open Enrollment Process
(Open Enrollment window for 2020-21 will open Dec 2019 - date TBD)
The vast majority of our students attend their neighborhood high school. Students are assigned to their home school based on the location of their residence (use the Attendance Street Search to find your home school.) Special Needs students typically are assigned to the school that houses the program that is best suited to meeting the special needs of the student, irrespective of the location of the student’s residence. Under the district’s Open Enrollment policy, the board annually reviews school capacity and determines the number of spaces available for intradistrict transfer.
Projections & capacity for the 2020-20 school year will be determined in November 2019.
Intra-District Transfers (year-round)
While students are expected to attend the school that serves the area in which their residence is located, occasionally, and only under very special circumstances, students are granted an inter- or intra- district transfer request outside of the open-enrollment window. This include transfers for sibling privilege, senior privilege and for students who move within the MVLA district boundary.
