PERMITS
 
Non-Residents (Interdistrict Permits)  -  Non-Resident intedistrict permits allow students from districts outside of Torrance to apply to attend Torrance schools.
 
Interdistrict permits are approved on a case-by-case basis and are subject to availability and approval by the school requested.  Once permits are granted they are valid through 12th grade as long as the student stays in good standing at the school, and are not required to be renewed by the home district annually.  However, permits are subject to annual review and approval by the school site principal and are not guaranteed to be renewed.  The Torrance Unified School District’s decision to accept your student’s permit will be based on space available at the Torrance school requested. Students must have, and maintain, satisfactory attendance, effort, academic achievement and behavior. Torrance Unified School District will accept Interdistrict releases beginning February 2, 2015 (official date varies each school year). The district will continue to accept releases for new students year round; however, the permit must be received by May 29, 2015 in order to guarantee it is processed by the start of the 2015-2016 school year.

 renewal permits
