Open Enrollment - Permits
by Karen McKelvey
Residents of Torrance (Open Enrollment)
Open Enrollment is a policy that allows Parents/Guardians who live within the Torrance Unified School District boundaries to apply to have their children attend a school other than their neighborhood school. Once a year, during a specific period of time, applications are accepted for the following school year. Once the procedure is complete and the student has been accepted, the Open Enrollment school becomes the permanent home school for that student.
For the 2013-14 school year, completed applications must be submitted between February 1 and February 28, 2013 to: the District Office (for elementary schools and middle schools) or the high school office (for the high school requested). No late applications will be accepted. Applications are available at the District Office at 2335 Plaza del Amo, on the District website at www.tusd.org, and at all school sites beginning January 31, 2013. For complete instructions and additional information, please visit our website at www.tusd.org.
