The Magnolia School District provides an outstanding educational program designed to meet the needs of our students. Our first priority is to provide for the attendance of students who live within the boundaries of each neighborhood school. There are three attendance options that Magnolia offers.

Interdistrict Transfers (Non-Resident of the Magnolia School District)

The District recognizes that parents who reside in one school district may prefer to attend school in another district and that such choices are made for a variety of reasons. Approval of an Interdistrict Transfer request into the District is contingent upon space availability and student and parent compliance with agreement expectancies.

Magnolia School District students residing within any home school attendance area shall have first priority to attend their neighborhood school. After all children within each school’s attendance area have been accommodated, remaining placement requests will be considered. Students may not be displaced from their home school of attendance because of new intradistrict students.

Application Procedure

Applicants are required to submit an authorized release from their district of residence. The application is considered in light of criteria and available space after providing for district resident students. The Superintendent or designee may approve interdistrict agreements for several reasons, with the following being the most common:

  • Child care
  • Sibling attends due to previous approval
  • To complete a school year when parents/guardians have moved out of the district
  • Parents are employed within the boundaries of the school district

Appeal Process

When a request for a school transfer is denied, a written explanation for the denial will be provided to the parent or guardian. The parent or guardian may initiate an appeal of the intradistrict or interdistrict transfer denial. All appeals shall be made in writing to the Magnolia School District, Resources and Services Division at the address below:

Magnolia School District 2705 W. Orange Ave Anaheim, Ca 92804

Interdistrict Transfers (To leave the Magnolia School District)

There may be occasions where parents/guardians who live within the Boundaries of the Magnolia School District to have a need or preference to attend schools outside our boundaries. In these cases, the parents must first complete an “Interdistrict Attendance Permit”. We will review and forward the permit to the district where the parent/guardian wishes to attend. There is no guarantee that the receiving district will have space and/or will approve the transfer request once we have approved or denied the request to leave this District. These permits also must be renewed annually.

Appeal Process

When a request for a school transfer is denied, a written explanation for the denial will be provided to the parent or guardian. The parent or guardian may initiate an appeal of the intradistrict or interdistrict transfer denial. All appeals shall be made in writing to the Magnolia School District, Resources and Services Division at the address below:

Intra-District Attendance Options (Move between Magnolia School District)

The Magnolia School District provides an outstanding educational program designed to meet the needs of our students. Our first priority is to provide for the attendance of students who live within the boundaries of each neighborhood school.

The Magnolia School District endorses the neighborhood school concept. Homeschool attendance areas are established to optimize the use of existing facilities and permit the most effective use of total District Resources. The District recognizes that parents may wish to choose a school of attendance other than the home school. Requests for intradistrict transfers may be made for reasons of personal preference, child care providers, preference based on the needs of the family or child, a desire for a special education or family hardship conditions.

Application Procedure

Parents who reside within district boundaries may apply for enrollment in any district school, which is designated to have space using a “School Transfer Request Form”, available at the District Office. Normally, information about space availability for the following school year is not known until May for the Year-Round Schools, and August or September for the traditional calendar schools. Parents are required to enroll at their home schools in case there is not sufficient space at their school of choice. Parents are notified about the status of their request after space is guaranteed for resident students and additional space is determined to be available for transfer students. Due to our continuing growth, the student may be subject to displacement due to lack of space.

Appeal Process

When a request for a school transfer is denied, a written explanation for the denial will be provided to the parent or guardian. The parent or guardian may initiate an appeal of the intradistrict or interdistrict transfer denial. All appeals shall be made in writing to the Magnolia School District, Resources and Services Division at the address below:
