Due to continued growth in Chula Vista, NO new transfers will be approved for eastern schools effective immediately.
Other Criteria For Student Placement
Assignments are made to requested schools on a projected space-available basis before the start of the school year, and until the next to last space in each class is reached after school has begun. At that point, names of applicants residing within CVESD will be placed on waiting lists for space availability in programs for which they are eligible. Placement may be activated until the end of the first semester. New transfer applications must be initiated at the neighborhood school by a child's parent/guardian using the District's Zone Transfer form, and must be delivered to the neighborhood school. All renewal zone transfer requests shall be initiated at the school of choice the child currently attends. New and renewal interdistrict transfer requests shall be initiated at the district office of the school district in which the student lives.
Children whose parents/guardians have not initiated a zone transfer request between March 1 - May 1, 2017 may initially be assigned to the neighborhood school. Transfer requests received after the May 1st deadline for zone transfers can be held at the District office ten days after the start of the school. At that time, they will be processed and considered according to space availability.
Parents/guardians with multiple children seeking placement in one school may complete one application showing the names of ALL children from the same family requesting placement in the school of choice indicated on the application.
Zone Transfers are granted one school year at a time.
Parents/guardians of students requesting to return to schools of choice must reapply for transfer each year.
Occasionally there are no classroom spaces available in the neighborhood school. When this occurs, the District may assign students to another school for the remainder of the year, or until space becomes available at the neighborhood school. The District generally provides transportation for overflow students, unless the placement is within walking distance. Parents are welcome to transport their student if this is preferred.
