Interdistrict Transfers


If you are living outside of the Orchard School District attendance boundary and would like to attend Orchard, please do the following:

  1. Go to the district office of your home district to fill out an Inter-District Transfer form. We recommend that you ask for a copy of the completed form.
  2. If approved, your home district will forward your request directly to Orchard.
  3. Once Orchard receives your request, Orchard will either approve or deny the request and inform you by mail.
  4. The entire process takes approximately two weeks. If you would like to follow up on the status of your request, you may call the school office at (408) 944-0388 or bring in a copy of the original request form.
