Open Enrollment, Interdistrict and Intradistrict Transfer Policies

Students doing the pledge of allegiance
Clovis Unified School District recognizes that students and families have unique needs deserving special consideration. Therefore, procedures have been established providing for the attendance needs of students and families, which supersede the school selection determined by the residence of the student.

Please review the different transfers below and choose the type that meets your needs.

Transfers are valid for one school year, students must apply annually.

Each school district has their own policies and practices.  Applicants must be approved for release by their resident district AND then approved for enrollment by Clovis Unified School District. 

Employment Based
Applications are for parents who work within Clovis Unified School District attendance boundaries for 10 or more hours per week. Click here for more information.

Once granted, students become residents of the district, not a specific school. Parents must re-verify their employment annually to maintain enrollment.
