*The district may approve transfers for currently enrolled students who have moved and wish to continue attending through graduation.

Considerations:

  • If approved, the transfer agreement states that transportation is the responsibility of the transferring family and the transfer is 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; no expulsions
  • Failure to meet these expectations may result in the transfer being revoked and the student returning to their resident district.
  • 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. Students do not have to reapply every year.
  • 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 application.
