Out-of-District Transfers

Eugene School District 4J’s welcomes families who live outside of the district to request a transfer to 4J. A lottery is held each spring to determine the order in which requests will be granted for any available openings.

Open enrollment (non-resident) transfer requests for 2017–18 will be accepted beginning at 8 a.m., Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at http://4jschoolchoice.com. The deadline to apply for an open enrollment transfer is 5 p.m., Saturday, April 1, 2017.

If there are more non-resident applicants than the number of openings determined by the school board, students will be admitted to the district through a lottery using these priorities:

  • 1st priority will be given to nonresident students currently enrolled in a 4J school via an existing open enrollment transfer or a 2016–17 inter-district transfer
  • 2nd priority will be given to nonresident students with a sibling, living in the same household, who has the district’s permission (through open enrollment) to attend the same 4J school
  • 3rd priority will be given to all other non-resident students.

All offers to enroll are based on space availability. Please note that in-district applicants must be placed before seats can be offered to out-of-district applicants.

Per the open enrollment state law, non-resident applicants must be offered and accept a seat by April 30, 2017, or their application becomes ineligible. If schools have in-district students on a grade’s wait list on April 30, 2017, out-of-district students’ applications on those wait lists will be ineligible for a 2017–18 open enrollment transfer.
