In-district boundary exception
Applications for the 2021-2022 school year will be accepted beginning May 3, 2021 at 7am.
This process is for students living in Vancouver School District who are requesting to attend another school in the district that is not their resident/neighborhood school.
An In-District Choice Transfer form is not needed to renew an approved in-district boundary transfer to complete a school level (elementary, middle, high school) as long as you remain at the same school. Renewal requests will be granted as long as space is available and a boundary exception has not been revoked.
An In-District Choice Transfer form is required for students that want to attend a different school for the first time that is not their resident school. This includes students who are requesting a language learning program (dual language, immersion) and highly capable programs, or changing a school level (middle or high school). Requests will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis based on space availability, attendance and discipline.
More information is available below under the tab “Changing VPS schools.”
