Final Application Period 
  • May 1-11, 2018
Final Application Notification Date
  • June 15, 2018

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 2018-19 school year should fill out a School Choice Transfer Application.

*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.  Families who currently have a choice transfer in place through middle school do not need to submit a new application.  Applications are not processed on a first come, first served basis.
