What is Open Enrollment and what do I do to obtain a “Request for Intradistrict Transfer”?
Open Enrollment is the process where students attending Eureka City Schools can apply to go to a Eureka City School other than their current Eureka City School or school of residence. Once enrolled in a school through Open Enrollment, a student shall not be required to reapply for readmission. Students remain in that school’s attendance area until promotion from that school. The District reserves the right to change a student’s school of attendance to meet students’ academic needs, behavior needs or to relieve overcrowding. Intradistrict Request forms will be available the first three weeks of the school session each January at all schools, the District Office and on the district website. For the 2017-2018 school year the Open Enrollment dates are January 3 to January 24, 2017. Forms will be accepted at all schools and at the District Office. In schools where there are more applications than openings, a lottery will be held to determine which students are granted Open Enrollment, and to create a waiting list. Applications are treated equally, not on a first come, first-served basis. Each student in the family must apply separately to be considered for Open Enrollment. Students not granted an intradistrict transfer request will remain at their current school or school of residence. Once accepted for Open Enrollment the parent/guardian must confirm their enrollment within ten days. Transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
