Changing Schools: School Choice and Interdistrict Transfer
Every student is assigned a school based on where the family lives. School choice is a program that allows parents to choose different GUHSD schools for their students. School choice is only available during the School Choice Window, December 1, 2020 through March 5, 2021, 4:00 PM.
Interdistrict Transfers are for students who live outside of the GUHSD boundaries (for example, in San Diego, Chula Vista, etc.) and want to go to a GUHSD school. These types of transfers are also for students who live in our boundaries but want to go to a school in another district.
Other Ways to Change Schools
Sibling Transfer: If you have an incoming high school student in your household and a current 9th - 11th grade student who is already attending a GUHSD school other than your school of residence, your incoming student may qualify for a sibling transfer if you make the appropriate School Choice request during the School Choice window.
Admin Hardship: In very rare cases, a family may have a documented, exceptional hardship (other than transportation) that requires your student to change schools outside of the school choice window. If you feel like you have a documented exceptional need, contact your student's current principal to discuss.
