• Interdistrict Requests to Attend Luther Burbank School District

      2020-2021 Interdistrict Applications are now being Accepted!

      The Interdistrict Transfer process applies to those parents who woud like their children to attend a school in a district other than their residential district. All Interdistrict requests initiate at the district of residence and must be renewed annually since Interdistrict transfers are valid for one (1) school year. An approved Interdistrict Transfer agreement must be in effect between the district of residence and the school district of desired attendance before a student can attend the desired school.
