Notification of Open Enrollment
for Torrance Unified School District Residents
for the 2013-2014 School Year
Per Ed Code 35160.5b, Torrance Unified School District established a policy allowing Parents/Guardians who live within Torrance Unified School District boundaries to apply to have their children attend a school other than their home school. Once a year, during a specific period of time, applications are accepted for the following school year. Once the procedure is complete, the Open Enrollment school becomes the permanent home school for that student. Procedures are summarized below:
Complete one application for each student applying, but only one per student. Younger siblings, including incoming kindergarteners, do not automatically follow an older sibling on open enrollment-an application must be submitted for each student wanting to change their home school.
Applications will be available at the District Office at 2335 Plaza del Amo, on this website, and at all school sites beginning January 31, 2013.
Parent/Guardian will receive a letter stating whether your application for Open Enrollment was approved or not; and if not, your number on the waiting list..
If approved for Open Enrollment, Parent/Guardian MUST fill out the CONFIRMATION SECTION of the letter and return the letter to the District Office (for elementary schools and middle schools) or the high school office (for the high school requested) by the date indicated on the confirmation letter.
If accepted and confirmed, Parent/Guardian MUST still go to the school of choice and ENROLL the student for the 2013-2014 school year by the date indicated on the confirmation letter. Once enrolled, this school remains the student’s home school through high school graduation, even if you move to another address in Torrance.
