The Fountain Valley School District encourages students to attend their neighborhood “home” school as determined by the student’s home address.  If you are unsure of your child’s home school, please use our School Locator found at the link below, for assistance. School Locator Site

If you are a resident of Fountain Valley School District and you are interested in attending a school in FVSD that is not your home school, please complete an Intra-District Transfer Form and turn it in to your home school with proof of residency documents attached.

If you are a resident of another district, but would like to attend a school in the Fountain Valley School District, please go to your home district and complete an Inter-District Transfer Request.  If approved, the transfer request will be sent to FVSD.  You will be notified by FVSD if your transfer is accepted based on available space at your requested school site. The District begins accepting transfer requests March 1st for the following school year. Transfer requests for the current year are accepted on an on-going basis.

Interdistrict transfer agreements are valid only for the school year granted; the agreement expires at the end of each school year and must be renewed annually.

 Approval is subject to space availability in the district, at a school site, grade level or within a specific program.  An approved transfer into the District may not result in attendance at the site requested.

This agreement may be revoked at any time by the District for the following reasons:

  • Student is excessively tardy or absent from school, or student is brought to school excessively early or left excessively late.
  • Student has poor academic performance.
  • Student fails to uphold appropriate behavior standards.
  • Insufficient space in the school and/or grade level.
  • False or misleading information was provided.
  • Student or parents fail to follow school rules.
 

If you are a resident of FVSD and would like to attend a school in another district, please complete the FVSD Inter-District Transfer Request and submit it to the Fountain Valley School District Business Office.

The District will (a) notify parent submitting a current year request of its final decision within 30 calendar days from the date the request was received and (b) notify parents submitting a future year request of its final decision as soon as possible, but no later than 14 calendar days after the beginning of the school year for which the transfer is requested.

In the event a transfer is denied, parents have the right to appeal to the Orange County Board of Education within 30 days of the denial.

Failure of a parent to adhere to the timelines established by the District shall be deemed an abandonment of the transfer request.

In the event your family needs assistance with documents related to the Inter-District or Intra-District Transfer process, especially with support for languages other than English, please contact the Educational Services Department of Fountain Valley School District via phone at (714) 843-3200 or via email at edservices@fvsd.us.  FVSD staff will gladly provide assistance.
