Riverside Unified School District is committed to offering families choices that provide the best educational fit for their children. This page explains the wide variety of transfers parents may apply for if they feel a special program or school other than their child’s home school is a better fit for their child.

THE 2020-2021 INTRA AND INTER-DISTRICT TRANSFER WINDOW IS OPEN ONLY FOR NEW STUDENTS TO RUSD


Students that are NOT currently enrolled in Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) are welcome to enroll for the 2020-2021 school year. To register new students, parents must schedule an appointment using SignUpGenius HERE.

Parents will submit an intra or inter-district transfer request form at their scheduled registration appointment. Those that live outside our District’s attendance boundaries and are requesting to attend schools in RUSD, must obtain a release from their district of residence. However due to the impacts of COVID-19 on school operations, we will conditionally enroll inter-district students, pending an approved release from their district of residence. Please, see the FAQ’s below for more information including the process for release from the district of residence.

Lastly, keep in mind that inter-district transfers are to the District, not a particular school. We will do our very best to accommodate parents’ requests for a particular school, but placement at schools is based on space availability. Welcome to RUSD and know that we will work diligently to accommodate requests and keep students together as best we can.

For more information on transfer requests you may email the Transfer Specialist at azavala@riversideunified.org
