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. 

If you wish to attend your home school, then simply enroll at that school with all the necessary paperwork. Your new school will arrange for an exchange of records from the previous school.

New to the district or to your neighborhood school?

You may register your child at your home school at any time by going to the school office. Check your school website for office hours.

In-District Transfers 

The in-district transfer process applies to Forest Grove School District residents only who wish to apply to schools within the Forest Grove School District.  All resident students need to be enrolled in the Forest Grove School District before submitting a transfer request. Please make sure your student is enrolled in their home school before the request is submitted to the school you wish your student to attend.
