The Board of Education recognized that parents may request a permit to attend a school other than the assigned school of residence. Requests for permits may be made for enrollment in a specialized program or reasons based on the needs of the family or child. Permit types include Intra-District (GUSD resident students) and Inter-District (students outside the GUSD attendance boundaries). Reasons for each permit type include the following: Adjustment, Anticipated Move, District Employment, Prior Attendance, Privately Arranged Child Care, Remain at Capped Site, Sibling, and Special Curriculum, Romero-Act (Board Policies 5116.1, 5117, 5118: AR 5116.1& 5117. Permits (new and renewal) are granted based on space availability and meeting established criteria for each permit reason. Permit forms are available and processed at the District Office.
For the 2014-2015 school year, new/initial permits will be accepted for the following schools:
Elementary Schools: Cerritos, Dunsmore and Valley ViewMiddle Schools: Roosevelt and TollHigh Schools: Glendale and Hoover
Students must attend school in the district where their parent or legal guardian resides. The Board of Education recognizes the need, and provides for, inter-district transfers in special circumstances. The criteria for executing an inter-district permit will be the same for students entering or leaving the Glendale Unified School District. Acceptance of permit student is dependent upon availability of space.
The Board of Education recognizes that parents may wish to choose a school of attendance other than the assigned school of residence. The Board therefore believes that parental choice among District schools should be included as an integral feature of a well-rounded educational environment. Acceptance of permit student is dependent upon availability of space.
