Inter and Intra District Permit Applications

  2. Approval of principals of schools involved.
  3. Available resources of the District.
  4. The student must have a 2.5 GPA (C+ average) or better, with good attendance, and good behavior.

Inter-District Permit (non-DUSD residents) – To enter a DUSD school if you live in another district
A permit from another school district to attend a school in the Downey district shall be approved by the principal of the receiving school and reviewed annually. Permits must be issued from the district of residence and will be placed on file with the Director of Student Services of the Downey Unified School District.

Intra-District Open Enrollment Permit (for DUSD residents only)
Students who reside within the DUSD boundaries may apply to attend another school within the DUSD boundaries by completing an application for an Intra-District Open Enrollment permit.

Intra-District Open Enrollment: (Available during the month of January only)
The Intra-District Open Enrollment application can only be submitted each year in January during the open enrollment period.

Please note that any permit may be revoked by the District and the student returned to the school or district of residence due to excessive enrollment at the chosen school, unsatisfactory attendance, unsatisfactory behavior, or unsatisfactory grades.
