Waivers for Students Who Live in the Auburn School District
Students who live within the district can apply for a Waiver/Student Transfer Resident Request to attend another school in the district, if there is space available at the requested school. Submit completed applications to the principal at the school requested. Once granted, the parent or guardian is notified by the school.
The student may remain at the school, without reapplying each year, as long as attendance, grades and behavior are satisfactory. Students must submit a new application when moving to a new school if the new school is also outside their resident boundary area.
Waivers for Students Who Live Outside the Auburn School District
If a student lives outside the district, they may attend Auburn schools if there is space available at the requested school and the student meets eligibility requirements. A
Waiver/Student Transfer Non-Resident Request, along with a Release of Attendance from the student’s resident district must be completed. You may submit your Release of Attendance through this Choice Transfer Request Portal. Once submitted, return the completed Waiver/Student Transfer Non-Resident form to the school you are requesting for consideration. Once this process is completed, the parent or guardian is notified by the school. Students who are not residents of Auburn must follow this procedure annually.
Releases to Attend a Non-Resident District
A student living in the Auburn School District may attend a different public school district if space is available in the requested district /school. A release of attendance from the Auburn School District must be completed. You may submit a release of attendance through the Choice Transfer Request Portal, or by filling the Release of Attendance out and returning it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or returning it in person to the district office.
Transfer requests may only take place at the beginning of a grading period, unless mutually agreed by both sending and receiving principals.
