Transfers are required for students to attend a school other than their "home school"-- the school assigned based on the parent/guardian's legal address of residence.
If you are new to the Hillsboro School District and wish to attend your home school, then simply enroll at that school with all the necessary paperwork. Your new school will arrange for an exchange of records from the previous school. For Hillsboro School District attendees, enrollment information is in the enrollment section.
Note that your city of residence does not define your school district. The Hillsboro School District comprises parts of several cities, including Banks, Beaverton, Cornelius and Portland, in addition to Hillsboro. Boundaries also may run across housing developments and apartment complexes. To confirm your home school, please call our Transportation Department at 503.844.1123
There are two main types of transfers:
- In-District — transfers within the Hillsboro School District
- Inter-District — transfers between the Hillsboro School District and another district (i.e., Banks, Beaverton or Forest Grove School Districts).
The sections on this page provide information on boundaries, timelines, forms, and policies related to student transfers. Transfers will be evaluated on several factors, which may include availability of space at the school and grade level, the reason for the request, and student history. There are no guarantees of approval; please read all terms carefully before applying.
