Permission for standard transfer in or out of a school district is decided based on both districts involved, priorities by Oregon legislature, district school boards, space availability and random lottery numbers. There is usually a set time frame for applying for transfers, and late applications can be denied.
There are state laws that govern the inter district transfer process. Inter district transfer laws are complex and have changed considerably over the past several years. Permission for standard transfers in or out of a school district is decided based on priorities by Oregon Legislature, district school boards, space availability and random lottery numbers. There is usually a set time frame for applying for inter-district transfers, and late applications can be denied. Generally, transfer decisions are made in the spring and summer for the following school year.
Transportation on all transfers will be solely the responsibility of the students’ parents/guardian.
All transfers are contingent upon satisfactory attendance, behavior and citizenship.Transfer approval will be revoked for students who are either:
  • Chronically absent (defined as missing 10% of school days) in a grading period.
  • Students who receive two or more suspensions from school.
  • Repeated late drop off and/or picked up.


Open Enrollment into the Centennial School DistrictNo longer Available starting the 2019-20 school year

The original statute allowing Open Enrollment by the Oregon Legislature has ended. Beginning the 2019-20 school year, Open Enrollment is no longer allowed under state law.

Interdistrict Transfer Out of the Centennial School DistrictMay 14th-June 28th, 2019

A limited number of transfer students are released out of the district each year. These students are granted an inter district transfer out of the district based on the Oregon legislature and the Centennial District Boards decision. If more students apply than allotted spaces are available.
Students who were enrolled in their requested district’s as 11th graders in the 2018-19 school year or students who have siblings already enrolled and have received a transfer in the requested school will not need to participate in the lottery and will be released from the Centennial School District through the application process.
If you do not meet the criteria above, the Centennial School District will release up to 30 resident students to attend schools in other districts. Both sides must agree to the transfer and notification of the district’s decision will be sent to you by mail. The Centennial School District will forward your paperwork to your requested district. 
Releases out of a district are good through 12th grade.   The Non- Resident district will determine the length of transfer in that district.
Applications will be available May 14h 2019 until June 28th 2019. At the end of that time  the district will make their final decisions. If the district receives more than 30 applications there will be a lottery drawing. Notifications will be mailed out by July 9, 2019.
