Inter-District Transfers

  • Families residing outside Lake Oswego School District boundaries who wish to enroll a student in LOSD without paying tuition must first contact their resident school district to seek approval for an inter-district transfer.  There is no LOSD form required by Lake Oswego School District - only the approved inter-district transfer form from the resident district.

     2021-22 School Year

    The LOSD School Board will set enrollment and transfer guidelines for the 2021-22 school year in January 2021. Please check back for updated information in February 2021.

     2020-21 School Year

    Elementary – No new inter-district transfer students will be accepted for the 2020-21 school year.

    Middle School – Out of district students who obtain an inter-district transfer from their resident district may be accepted on space availability basis. Requests will be reviewed in July 2020.

    High School – New inter-district transfer students will be accepted at grades 9-12 at Lakeridge High School and Lake Oswego High School. Approved transfers must be received no later than September 13, 2020.


  • Upon approval or denial, a copy of the request will be forwarded to each school/district concerned and the parents. 


  • Appropriate course or program space must be available. 

    The student is in good standing in the resident school district. 

    LOSD will refuse admission of a student expelled from another district until at least the end of the semester in which the student was expelled or longer if expulsion is under conditions addressed in the Gun Free School Act. 

    A transfer may be terminated if any educational, behavioral, or attendance issues are not consistent with LOSD Board Policies and Guidelines.
