Enrollment & School Choice

  • Enrollment:

    • Students currently attending a CVUSD school, with an address zoned for Redwood, automatically feed to Redwood…you need not do anything!
    • If your address is zoned for another Middle School in CVUSD, and you would like your student to attend Redwood, you will need to fill out a School Choice Application. You can verify what school you are zoned for online here.
    • If you live in a school district outside of CVUSD, you will need to apply for an Interdistrict Transfer


    School Choice:

    • If you are zoned for a middle school other than Redwood and you would like your student to attend Redwood you must apply for School Choice.
    • On-line forms are available here.
    • Applications should be submitted by January 31 in order to be considered “on time” and included in the lottery process.
    • Applications are still accepted after January 31st, but will be processed on a case by case basis and may result in your student being placed on a waitlist.
    • If you apply for School Choice before January 31st, you will receive an email letter, no later than March 16th, with a determination.
    • Once School Choice has been approved, the approved school will contact you with registration procedures.


    Interdistrict Transfer:

    • If you reside outside of CVUSD boundaries, you will need to apply for an Interdistrict Transfer.
    • Information is now available online here.
    • Priority deadline for the application is from November 1 to January 31 to be considered on time.  
    • Interdistrict Transfer applications may still be submitted after January 31, and will be placed on a waitlist.
    • The application must be submitted to your district of residence for approval first.
    • Upon approval from your district of residence, the transfer then needs to be approved by CVUSD.
    • Once a decision has been made on your application, you will receive an email from the Interdistrict Transfer office. Middle School letters will start to be processed on March 1
    • At that time, you will also be contacted by the approved school with registration procedures.
