Interdistrict Transfers

 Interdistrict Transfer
(Out of District)

 transfers are from one DISTRICT to another DISTRICT.  Due to the passage of Assembly Bill 2444 in 2010, parents who wish their child to remain at the same school for which the previous transfer was approved no longer need to complete a new application form for the next year. 

*** NEW INCOMING INTERDISTRICT TRANSFER REQUESTS - Parents/students who wish to attend LGSD but live in another school district must first complete the Application for Interdistrict Attendance Permit (Form #341-SS) and obtain a signature of approval from their district of residence before submitting the application to LGSD.
