Inter-district Transfer

TK-12 Inter-District (outside WJUSD) Transfer
Inter-District Agreements (IDA) are renewed annually for outgoing or incoming students to the WJUSD. The WJUSD will start accepting IDAs for the 2024-2025 school year beginning on March 1, 2024.

Students who reside in one district may choose to attend school in another district. The District must complete the Intra-district Transfer process first, before the Inter-district Transfers are considered. An "Inter-District Agreement (IDA)" form must be obtained from the District Office of residency, and returned to that same office for processing before a request will be considered from our District.
If your Incoming IDA transfer was previously approved and was based on employment, an annual employment verification must be submitted, along with proof of employment.
Please print the appropriate form to be submitted to the District Office:
  • Eng-Incoming IDA Employment Verification
  • Sp-Incoming IDA Employment Verification
The Superintendent or designee may deny initial requests for Inter-District Agreement (IDA) if the school's facilities are overcrowded at the relevant grade level and based on other considerations that are not arbitrary.

Students who are under consideration for expulsion or who have been expelled may not appeal Inter-District Agreement (IDA) denials or decisions while expulsion proceedings are pending, or during the term of the expulsion. (Education Code 35160.5)

The District does not provide transportation for students on an Inter-District Agreement (IDA). (Board Policy 5117)

An annual application must be submitted. If requesting to attend WJUSD, contact your district of residence to start the process. If requesting to transfer out of WJUSD, contact Stephanie Velgara at (530) 406-3258 or by email at  You can also print the applicable PDF forms listed below.

Please print the appropriate form to be submitted to the District Office:
  • Outgoing IDA Application- Eng/Sp form (to apply for attendance outside the Woodland School District)

  • Employment Outgoing IDA Verification form (REQUIRED for employment reasons, along with proof of employment.  Please read for more information.)

  • Child Care Outgoing IDA Verification-Eng/Sp form (REQUIRED for childcare reasons)
The deadline to submit a new IDA request for the 2024-2025 school year is June 2, 2025. Please note that this deadline does not apply to students currently enrolled in WJUSD. Currently, enrolled students who move out of Woodland must apply for an Interdistrict Transfer in order to remain enrolled in WJUSD.
