Important Dates:

April 2 - June 29, 2018                                               Interdistrict permit applications will be reviewed for possible placement if space is available.  Approval notifications will be mailed in the months of July and August.  If any grades reaches capacity, applicants will be placed on a wait list.
July 2 - August 24, 2018                                                                                                                                                                       

Any interdistrict permit applications received for any grade that is already at capacity will be automatically placed on a wait list.  We recommend that you have a Plan B in case we are unable to meet your permit request.  If space does become available, approval notifications will be made either by mail and/or phone when space is determined.

 

September 14, 2018                                         The wait list expires and final denial notification letters will be mailed no later than September 18, 2018.

 

Thank you for your interest in the Wiseburn Unified School District.  The following should answer any questions you might have regarding the permit process:

 

  • Interdistrict Permit Applications will become available on Monday, April 2, 2018 through August 24, 2018 for the 2018-19 school year.
     
  • Even though you have obtained an “approved” release from your school of residence, your child is still guaranteed a seat to return to his/her resident school district if you choose to return.
     
  • Filling out our Interdistrict Permit Application does NOT guarantee your child a space in Wiseburn.  We recommend that you have a “Plan B” in case we are unable to meet your permit request. 
     
  • The number of possible seats available for the 2018-19 school year for "new" permit applicants will be determined in late July or early August.  
     
  • Approvals are not based on a first-come basis - approvals shall be determined by lottery by grade/school when space availability is determined.  Please refrain from making any calls to check on the status of your child(ren)'s application(s) at this time.  Because of the large volume of applicants, we cannot return every single call in a timely manner, especially during the end of August.  We apologize in advance.
     
  • Only approved applicants for Kindergarten will be notified by mail starting in May and June and if necessary in July or August.
     
  • There is a possibility that we may not be able to honor the school you requested based on lack of seat availability at that particular school.  If that happens and your application is approved, your child will be placed at one of our other schools that do have a seat available. 
     
  • For Hawthorne, Lawndale, and Lennox School District families, Wiseburn entered into an agreement in 2012 with these districts regarding the number of permit requests that Wiseburn can approve from these districts each school year.  Once the enrollment cap is reached for any of these districts, Wiseburn will not be able to accommodate any more permit requests for that school year.  For the 2018-19 school year, we already met the cap of 175 with Hawthorne School District.

 

Along with our application, the following documents are required:  (bring originals)

  • For Transitional Kindergarten (TK) and Kindergarten Requests:
    a)  Approved release permit from your resident school district, and
