Families that live outside of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District will now be given the opportunity to seek an interdistrict transfer and enroll their children at SRVUSD schools.
Availability is limited but so long as they meet the district's qualifications, students of all ages could be able to attend SRVUSD schools, regardless of where they live.
“SRVUSD has streamlined the enrollment request process for eligible families who reside in other Bay Area communities, reducing the stress of finding a high-performing new school,” Elizabeth Graswich, director of communications and community relations, said in a statement.
In order to transfer, interested parents or guardians must obtain an interdistrict transfer approval document from their home school district. If the student is in middle or high school they must also submit their academic, discipline and attendance records to be reviewed by the district.
Families interested in enrolling one or more of their children should start by checking with their home districts to see their policies on transferring students out of district. Some districts will send the appropriate paperwork to the SRVUSD, but in other cases the family will have to acquire and file the necessary transfer documents.
If approved, families will be notified via email to begin the enrollment process.
“SRVUSD is one of California’s top performing school districts,” Graswich said, describing the desirability of the district. “More than 98% of its students graduate from high school, and 95% of those grads plan to attend college, with 71% attending a four-year university.”
Graswich also mentioned SRVUSD’s modern school facilities, college placement courses and the “exceptionally” high ranking district students earn in college placement exams such as the ACT and SAT.
