Families who move out of the district should visit their child’s school, if possible, to withdraw
Starting May 3 at 7 a.m., parents and guardians may request that their child transfer into or out of Vancouver Public Schools for the 2021-22 school year.
Parents who live in VPS’ boundaries but want their child to attend a school in another school district, including online programs such as WAVA or Insight, should fill out the out-of-district choice transfer form. Once the form is completed, the requested district will be notified.
Families who move out of the district should visit their child’s school, if possible, to withdraw. Alternatively, they can contact the school by phone or email or ask their new school to initiate the withdrawal process.
Parents who live outside of VPS’ boundaries but want their child to attend a school in the district should complete a PDF out-of-district choice transfer form and email it to the school district that serves their address. That district will notify VPS of the request. Within 45 days, parents can expect to hear whether the request is approved.
Get the PDF form and email addresses, as well as see more details about the process, at https://vansd.org/student-welfare-attendance/boundaries.
Please note that requests are valid for only one school year.
