School Choice Transfer Application Period for 2020-2021 Happening Now

The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) School Choice Transfer Application period for the 2020-2021 school year begins Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at 7:30 am and ends Friday, January 31, 2020 at 4:30 pm. During this time, parents of any current or incoming students who wish to attend a PYLUSD school other than his or her home school of residence for the 2020-2021 school year should fill out a School Choice Transfer Application. Initial application notifications will take place Friday, March 13, 2020.
A second opportunity to submit a School Choice Transfer Application will take place from May 4, 2020 to May 15, 2020; however, do not delay. Transfer approvals are subject to space availability. In any situation where the number of requests exceeds the space available, approval of transfers will be determined by a random and unbiased selection process.
Interested families may complete a School Choice Transfer Application (beginning January 8, 2020) online at or in person at the PYLUSD Student Services office located at 1301 E Orangethorpe Ave., Placentia, CA 92870.
Please note, PYLUSD school sites do not distribute nor accept School Choice Transfer Applications. In addition, once a student has been approved to their school of choice, that school becomes their designated school of attendance. This transfer will remain in effect through middle school. Current 8th graders attending a middle school on a School Choice Transfer will need to reapply if they wish to attend a PYLUSD high school other than his or her home school of residence.
