Enroll and Transfer


Transfers are required for students to attend a school other than their "home school", the school assigned based on the parent/guardian's legal address of residence.

Students should plan to attend their home school until their transfer is approved.

In-District Transfers 

The in-district transfer process only applies to Forest Grove School District (FGSD) residents. This process is for students who wish to apply to schools within the FGSD for grades K-6. All resident students need to be enrolled at their home school in the FGSD before submitting a transfer request.

The request window occurs annually April 1 through May 31. Please fill out the form and return to the school you wish your student to attend.  Every attempt will be made to notify families about the status of their request prior to August 15th.  However, some schools may not be able to act on requests until they have a better idea of their resident student enrollment numbers. Any requests submitted for incoming kindergarteners may be held for consideration until school starts.
