Student holding globe Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) is welcoming families who live outside the District’s boundaries to submit District of Choice transfer applications for the 2014-2015 school year.

As a designated District of Choice, any K-12 student may now apply to attend Riverside schools, even if RUSD is not their home district. Per state law, a student’s home district may not prevent District of Choice transfers into RUSD.

The District of Choice option is available to any student who does not live within RUSD boundaries but is interested in attending RUSD schools for the 2014-2015 school year. Admission to the District through a District of Choice transfer does not guarantee students a place at their school of choice. However, every effort will be made to accommodate specific school requests.

Although the window for District of Choice transfers is now closed, you may submit an application for an Inter-District transfer during the Open Enrollment Intra and Inter-District transfer window.  Transfer applications for the 2015-16 school year District of Choice will be accepted between November 1, 2014 and January 1, 2015.
