Interdistrict and Intradistrict Transfers

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. 

If you are interested in our Visual and Performing Arts Program at Jackson Elementary School information and brochures are available on our website. Students must be registered at their home school in the attendance area where they reside.
