California law allows a parent or legal guardian working a minimum of 10 hours per week within the boundaries of Clovis Unified to enroll their child in CUSD. To enroll a child in Clovis Unified under the Employment Based Residence Law (CA Ed Code 48204) a parent must present a completed Annual Employment Verification Form (Board Policy 5111.1, Exhibit 6) with a current paycheck stub or business license with a current lease for office space within CUSD attendance boundaries to the District’s Student Services & School Attendance office. (**Sierra Unified School District residents must start the process at their home district.)
For applications submitted before May 1 for the following school year, families will generally receive results regarding their request prior to August 1. For enrollment requests during the current school year, application processing generally takes seven to thirty days depending on time of year and availability of student records.
Once enrollment is authorized, parents/legal guardians may proceed to the approved school to register. Please see "New Student Registration" for further information.
**Residents of Sierra Unified School District are not eligible to participate in Employment Based Residence Enrollment at this time as their number of residence has exceeded state regulations. However, students may pursue a traditional Interdistrict transfer and list "employment" as the reason for the request.
