Interdistrict Transfer (IDT) Attendance

Timeline and Frequently Asked Questions 


Thank you for your interest in our District. CUSD will start accepting IDT Applications on March 1, 2021.

Please be sure to enroll your student in their home school, pending notification through this IDT process. Students must enroll, remain enrolled, and attend school in their district of residence pending the application process for an interdistrict attendance permit. 


Parents of approved applicants will be notified via the email address included on the transfer application. Notifications will be made in accordance with education code timelines outlined below.


Q: Are you accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year? 
A: CUSD will start accepting applications for IDT starting March 1, 2021. Please note that not all San Diego County Schools will start processing applications at the same time. Remember to have your student enrolled in school pending CUSD notifications. 
Q: How do I apply?
A: Please see below:
  • Complete an application for interdistrict attendance. Applications can be found here. Once your district of residence signs your application, you can submit the form to:; alternatively, you can mail applications to 201 Sixth Street, Coronado, CA 92118 ATTN: Interdistrict Transfers    
  • Applications will not be accepted without a signature from your district of residence. 
  • New Permit forms can be submitted to the Coronado Unified School District electronically from March 1, 2021, through June 11, 2021 for the 2021 - 2022 school year. 
  • Permits are valid only while conditions stated are maintained, and as long as the student's attendance, behavior and grades are satisfactory to the district of attendance. A permit may be revoked for cause at any time. False or misleading information may be cause for denial or revocation. Individual district policies pertain to each permit.
Q: I am stationed in Coronado, or I work within District boundaries; can I enroll my student in CUSD schools? 
A:  Residing within the boundaries of CUSD is the only way to guarantee student enrollment. Being employed within the boundaries is a reason that you can apply for an interdistrict transfer. You cannot register your child in CUSD until you have an approved transfer application, signed by CUSD. 
Q: What if my child attends a private school in another District?  
A: Even if your student has never attended public school in your home district, your home district office is still required to complete the application.
Q: If accepted, will I need to reapply every year?
A: A new application must be reapplied for at each level (elementary to middle, and middle to high school). A new Interdistrict transfer form will also need to be completed for the current school year if you move from inside the district to an address outside the school district or between two districts (i.e., moving from San Diego Unified to Cajon Valley). 
Q: What is the timeline for IDT processing? 
A: CUSD will notify a parent submitting a request for a current year with its final decision within 30 calendar days of the date of the request. Parents who are submitting a request for a future year will be notified as soon as possible, but no later than 14 calendar days after the commencement of the instruction in the school year for which interdistrict transfer is sought. 
Q: Can an existing interdistrict transfer be revoked? 
A: Yes, students may have their Interdistrict Transfer revoked or rescinded at any time for failure to meet terms and conditions of their application.
Q: My student is attending CUSD on an approved IDT for CoSA, and no longer wants to participate in CoSA. Can I apply for a new IDT? 
A: No. As a condition for students who attend CHS due to admittance into the CoSA program, students MUST stay enrolled in the CoSA program; there will be no programmatic changes. Once a student is attending CUSD schools on an approved IDT, there cannot be a second application made. 
Q: Can an Interdistrict Transfer be denied or revoked?
A:  Yes. Terms for Revocation of an Interdistrict Transfer Permit.

If a student has been habitually truant or irregularly absent; b. If a student fails to maintain passing grades and/or satisfactory academic progress; c. If a student is subject to student discipline; d. If a student is recommended for expulsion; or e.
