Intra District - Open Enrollment

What is an Intra-District Transfer?

For internal, Newark to Newark school transfers.

Newark Unified School District assigns schools based on your home address. If you would like to apply for another school in our District, you will need to fill out an Intra-District Transfer.  Requests for enrolled students to change schools WITHIN Newark Unified will be accepted at the District Office beginning January 4, 2021. An Intra-District Open Enrollment request must be completed for each student. Open Enrollment requests, that can be accommodated, are approved on a first come first served basis. Open Enrollment requests are NOT accepted at the school sites. 

How Do I Apply for an Intra-District Transfer?

Email the electronically completed form to Nicole Lemas at or by dropping them off (by appointment only) by contacting Nicole Lemas at 510-818-4202. Once the process is complete you will receive a letter via email or mail from Student Support Services.
