Parents have until June 13, 2014* to request a transfer for their non-resident student to attend a Hillsboro school or to request a release for their Hillsboro student to attend a non-resident district for the 2014-15 school year
May 16, 2014, Hillsboro, OR – Hillsboro School District has announced its plan for participating in the inter-district student transfer process for the 2014-15 school year.
Oregon House Bills 2747 and 4007 have modified laws around the inter-district transfer process, so please read the District’s Transfer Requests webpage (Inter-District Transfers tab) to get the most current information.
If your student is currently on an approved inter-district transfer and wishes to remain in the same non-resident district for 2014-15, you only need to fill out a transfer request with the non-resident district—you do not need to obtain consent from your resident district.
If, however, your student is not currently on an approved inter-district transfer, you need to fill out two forms: one with your resident district, requesting a release; and one with the non-resident district, requesting to attend.
Hillsboro School District is running a “time-certain” process (as opposed to a “rolling” process), which means that we will be collecting requests through June 13. At that time, if we have received more requests than we have slots available, we will conduct an equitable lottery to determine who will receive the incoming slots and releases. If we do not have more requests than slots available, all requests will be granted.
Families will be contacted after June 13 to update them on their status:
Again, please refer to the details of Hillsboro’s process and look for the appropriate forms on the District’s website. It is very important that you also research the timelines of either your resident district or the district your student wishes to attend to ensure you get all paperwork submitted on time. The new legislation does not allow much flexibility outside of stated windows.

*Please note that students who were previously granted transfers through House Bill 3681 Open Enrollment are unaffected by this legislation and do not need to take action.
