Rescue Union School District

Educating for the Future, Together

INTERDISTRICT
 
Rescue Union SD will begin accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year February 17, 2021 through the end of the open enrollment period, March 26, 2021. It is anticipated that applicants will be notified of their application status by May 28, 2021.
 
New This Year:

Previously, interdistrict transfers were for one year only and needed to be requested on an annual basis.  New this year, students (and siblings) attending the Rescue Union School District on a current interdistrict transfer (with an approved application for 2020-2021) shall not be required to reapply for readmission and the agreement will be effective for the grade span of their current school. 
 
Interdistrict applications will still be required for any new transfer request and for students changing schools (new grade span) as they transition from elementary to middle school.  Request should be sumitted by March 26, 2021
 
 If you are continuing due to employment, you need only submit an Annual Verification of Employment form with proof of employment.  RUSD will begin accepting applications February 17 through the end of the open enrollment period (March 26) for the 2021-2022 school year.
 
Students wishing to continue attendance on an Intradistrict Transfer will not be required to reapply unless they will be transitioning from elementary to middle school. 
 
Applications for interdistrict transfers are granted based on space availability at the requested school. The first step in this process is for the prospective student to obtain an approved Interdistrict transfer application from their district of residence.
 
Transportation is not provided, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide transportation to and from school.
 
If you are continuing due to employment, you need only submit an Annual Verification of Employment form with proof of employment.
