Interdistrict Transfer (IDT) Attendance

Timeline and Frequently Asked Questions 


Thank you for your interest in our District. CUSD will start accepting IDT Applications on February 3, 2020. Timelines for notifications will be updated as more information is available. 

Please be sure to enroll your student in their home school, pending notification through this IDT process. 

Parents of approved applicants will be notified via the email address included on the transfer application.


Q: Are you accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year? 
A: Yes, CUSD is accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year. 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: 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A: Yes, students may have their Interdistrict Transfer revoked or rescinded at any time for failure to meet terms and conditions of their application.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. 

Staff will be diligently working to process your IDT application(s) in accordance with the timelines above. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
