We are please to welcome students from all areas of our community. If you live outside of the West Sacramento, Washington Unified School District (WUSD) boundaries, you will need to complete an Interdistrict Transfer Permit (ITP) application. 
Please contact your District of Residence to complete the necessary forms. Once your home district approves your transfer, you may submit your district's approved, signed Interdistrict Transfer Application to the WUSD Student Services Department for review and approval.  This application must be filled out each new school year. 
This interdistrict transfer agreement must be filled out every year except for parents/guardians who work in West Sacramento.  Once their initial interdistrict transfer agreement has been approved WUSD becomes their district of residence as long as parent/guardian works in West Sacramento.  
Along with your Interdistrict Transfer Application, please submit: 
  • Your students' most current grades
  • Your student's record of attendance
  • Your student's behavior/discipline records from their most recent school
  • Written documentation validating your reason for the transfer
Families may apply for a school outside of the Washington Unified School District by coming to the Office of Student and Family Support Services and filling out the Interdistrict Transfer form. 
  • The form is then taken to the school district for which they wish to apply.
