If you missed the District of Choice December 28th deadline to submit an application and would like to have your student(s) enrolled in Mesa Union School for 2019-2020 you can still apply for an Inter-District Permit. Keep in mind that an Inter-District Permit is not related to the District of Choice lottery and requires a release from your resident district.
A parent or legal guardian of a student residing outside of the Mesa Union School District boundary may request a transfer for that student to this district from another by obtaining an Approved Interdistrict Transfer Request form from their resident school district office. Please be sure to hold your student's enrollment space at your resident school district until you receive an official transfer decision notification from our Student Services department.
