Out-of-District Transfers

Eugene School District 4J welcomes families who live outside of the district to request a transfer to 4J.

Inter-district Transfers

Please check this site in early 2019 for 2019-20 Inter-District Transfer information.

School Preference

Non-residents applying to transfer to the district may request their preferred school or schools among those that are open to requests. For any transfer, the preferred school must have a space available to meet the student’s needs.

Some schools are not open to requests from out-of-district students, because district residents have priority for any openings and these schools will not be able to accommodate all of the 4J residents who wish to attend.

Enrollment Priorities

If there are more non-resident applicants for open enrollment 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 an existing inter-district transfer for the current year
  • 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 district residents have priority for enrollment and must be placed before seats can be offered to out-of-district applicants.

NOTE: Per the open enrollment state law, (1) district residents must be accommodated first, and (2) non-resident applicants must be offered and accept a seat by April 30, or their application becomes ineligible. This means that if a school still has in-district students on a waiting list for a particular grade after April 30, any out-of-district students’ applications on that grade-level wait list will be ineligible for an open enrollment transfer for that year and will be removed from the wait list.

Transfers to Other Districts

4J residents who want to transfer to another school district must apply to the district they wish to transfer to.
