Santa Rosa City Schools welcomes students who reside outside of our district and allows students within our district to transfer to a school outside of their neighborhood.
Intra or Inter? What's the difference?
Intra - Intradistrict transfer is a transfer from one school to another school within the same school district.
Inter - Interdistrict transfer is a transfer from one school district to another school district.
At Santa Rosa City Schools, students who live within a particular school zone have enrollment priority in that neighborhood school, and transfer students may be enrolled based on availability of space and acceptance of a transfer application. To determine the schools zoned for your home address, type your address into My School Locator.
You can find more information on the SCOE website under Schools & Districts -> Attendance Options.
