For admission to the Canby School District from another school district, a release from the resident district must be obtained and submitted with a Request for Nonresident Student Admission Interdistrict Transfer Form to the Canby School District Office. Openings are limited; please see below:
The district will accept non-resident transfer applications into the district for the 2023-24 school year for existing families:
Students currently enrolled (students that experienced a mid-year or mid-summer move within the last year)
Siblings of non-resident students currently enrolled
In addition, the district will accept non-resident transfer applications, if space allows, for the following schools and grade levels:
Canby High School – 25 slots in grades 9-11
Baker Prairie Middle School – 5 slots in grades 7-8
Ninety-One School – 15 slots in grades K-8
Trost Elementary Dual Language Immersion Program – 5 slots in grade K
Carus, Eccles, Knight, and Lee – 25 slots total for elementary schools in grades K-6
If there are more applications than slots, the district will hold a lottery on May 2.
2023-24 Transfer Application Process:
The district will accept applications to the district beginning March 1, 2023, through May 1, 2023; students must register by May 31, 2023. After this window, only requests for admission due to a mid-year move or a hardship* will be considered.
Families must obtain a release from their resident district and apply for admission. If accepted, families agree that transportation is their responsibility
Transfers are contingent upon meeting behavior and attendance expectations:
Attendance of 92% or greater
No more than one suspension per academic year; no suspension of, or greater than, five days;
Failure to meet the above expectations may result in the transfer being revoked and the student returning to their resident district
Students receiving consent for admission may remain in the district until twelfth grade.
Once a student has been accepted into the Canby School District the student is considered a resident of this district until the student graduates from high school, enrolls in a school in a different district, or is no longer required to be admitted to the school district under ORS 339.133.
Acceptance of a non-resident admission under ORS 339.133(5)(b) does not guarantee athletic eligibility at the high school level. OSAA rules apply and should be carefully considered when making an application.
