Intra-district transfer deadline is Wednesday in MDUSD

By Theresa Harrington
Monday, January 13th, 2014 at 6:16 pm in Contra Costa County, Education, Mt. Diablo school district.

The deadline is Wednesday to submit applications for transfers outside neighborhood school attendance areas in the Mt. Diablo school district for students in grades 1-12 in 2014-15.

Applications are available at district schools or from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in student services wing D in the district office at 1936 Carlotta Drive, Concord. Applications are also available on the district’s web site at http://www.mdusd.org/Departments/studentservices/Pages/14-15Transfers.aspx.

Intra-district applications for incoming kindergartners may be submitted on or after the student is registered at his or her school of residence from Feb. 4-28.

Inter-district transfer applications for students who want to transfer to schools outside the Mt. Diablo school district will be accepted beginning Feb. 15.

More information is available by calling 925-682-8000 ext. 4069 or by e-mailing smithf@mdusd.org.

Here is an audio message from Student Services Director Felicia Stuckey-Smith about the Wednesday deadline: https://msg.schoolmessenger.com/m/?s=HQgd57zk-JI

Do you think the district does a good job of informing parents about the different types of transfers available?

    A robo-call 3 days before the deadline a “good job” ? Hardly, but it was by Felicia S-S so we are lucky it went out before Wednesday morning. :-)

    The biggest problem with Intradistrict transfers is that the student who is granted a transfer can in subsequent years be displaced by a student residing in the school residence. See BP 5116.1 “6. A student with an approved Intradistrict Transfer shall remain enrolled in a school unless the student is displaced by a student who resides in the school attendance area.” See also: “*PLEASE NOTE: Students on Intradistrict Transfers can be displaced prior to September 15 of each school year by students who reside in the school’s attendance area. (BP & AR 5116.1)” http://www.mdusd.org/Departments/studentservices/Documents/Intra-district%20transfer%20procedures%2014-15.pdf

    I agree this is a problem. I have known of parents who have chosen to send their children to private school due to this uncertainty.
