    How to Apply for an Incoming Interdistrict Permit to Attend a School in Duarte Unified:
     
    All students in Transitional Kindergarten through grade 12, including CSArts 7-8 students, who would like to attend one of our schools, but do not reside within the attendance boundaries of Duarte Unified, must obtain a valid interdistrict permit from both the District of residence and Duarte Unified. Our guide to the interdistrict process provides the steps outlined below and descriptions of the specialized programs offered in our schools.
     
    •  Enrollment for Students Entering the California School of the Arts-San Gabriel Valley (CSArts-SGV): 
     
    STEP 1. REQUEST TO LEAVE YOUR DISTRICT OF RESIDENCE
    • Obtain an interdistrict permit application from the student's District of residence.
    • Complete the interdistrict permit application form. Indicate the specific reason(s) for requesting the permit and attach any documentation supporting the reason(s).
    • Submit the interdistrict permit application form and supporting documents to the appropriate person or department at the District of residence.

     

    STEP 2. REQUEST TO ATTEND DUARTE UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

    Submit the approved interdistrict permit with the documents listed below:

    • Approved Interdistrict Permit  
    • Discipline Record
    • The following documentation may be requested by DUSD:  Discipline Record/Transcripts/Attendance Record. 
      • Issuance of an interdistrict permit by the District of residence does not guarantee acceptance by Duarte Unified; therefore, keep your student enrolled at their school of residence until the process is complete.
      • Incomplete applications will not be processed.
