Enrollment & School Choice Information


  • 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 at:  https://www.conejousd.org/Enroll-CVUSD/My-Neighborhood-School-Enrollment.
  • 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 now available at:  https://www.conejousd.org/Enroll-CVUSD/School-Choice
  • Applications should be submitted by January 31, 2022 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.
  • On-line forms are now available at:  https://www.conejousd.org/Enroll-CVUSD/Interdistrict-Transfer.
  • Priority deadline for the application is from November 1, 2021 to January 31, 2022 to be considered on time.  
  • Interdistrict Transfer applications may still be submitted after January 31, 2022, 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, 2022
  • At that time, you will also be contacted by the approved school with Registration procedures.

Never a failure. Only a lesson. You are supposed to make mistakes. That's why pencils have erasers. Making a mistake and learning from it is called growth!
