EGUSD Open Enrollment Policy

Under Board Policy 5116.1, the Board of Education annually identifies schools available for Open Enrollment Intradistrict Transfers. Assembly Bill 1114 allows the Board to limit Open Enrollment to schools that have space available based on future student enrollment projections. The bill further requires that:

  • Parents who are district residents will be able to select the school their child will attend, with the exception that the district maintains appropriate racial and ethnic balances among its schools.
  • Students who reside within a school’s attendance boundaries not be displaced by students “open enrolling” into the attendance area.
  • Any school receiving admission requests in excess of its capacity utilize a random, unbiased selection process for deciding among applicants.

Senate Bill 1207 requires that for the purpose of Open Enrollment, the governing board of a school district calculates the capacity of district school in a non-arbitrary manner using pupil enrollment and available space.


Open Enrollment applications are available to all students who live within the district boundaries as of January 1, 2020. The District reserves the right to limit the number of students transferring into or out of any schools. No elementary schools are included in Open Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year.
