Additionally, the district has determined that some schools sites may become "severely impacted."  A school considered to be "severely impacted" if, based upon current enrollment, there is no additional classroom space and/or a current elementary enrollment may severely impact an intermediate school site upon matriculation.  Families considering inter or intra-district transfer requests for the current 2020 - 2021 school year should note that the following schools are "severely impacted" :

  • Perdew Elementary – all grades

  • Terra Vista Elementary – all grades

  • Windrows Elementary – all grades

  • Etiwanda Intermediate School – all grades

Intra-district Transfer Process

Any parent or guardian of a TK-8 student residing within the Etiwanda School District boundaries may apply for a transfer to any school within the district.  Please see below for additional information pertaining to Intra-district transfers:

  • Students must be enrolled in their school of residence before submitting an Intra-district transfer request.
  • Intra-district transfer requests are granted based upon space availability, student conduct, and attendance.
  • Parent/guardian assumes responsibility for providing transportation to and from school.
  • A student on an approved Intra-district transfer may be subject to reassignment due to excessive enrollment at a school site.
  • Once a student is granted an Intra-district transfer for the school requested, they will attend the school(s) until the completion of 8th grade, as long as enrollment space exists and all transfer conditions are met.
  • An approved Intra-district transfer may be revoked at any time if information is falsified on the transfer request form or if a student demonstrates unsatisfactory conduct and/or attendance. Revocations are final and not subject to an appeal process.
