If your student is already in the  El Capitan attendance area, you may disregard this step. 

However, if you are outside the El Capitan attendance area, you may request a school transfer after you have completed the online registration process and have successfully created a Campus Portal account outlined in Steps 1 and 2.

Using the Campus Portal, you may request a school transfer through February, 24, 2017. Additional instructions for completing the transfer request form will be provided at the Campus Portal website. All transfer requests must be submitted online. Applications will not be accepted by mail, over the phone, or in person. If the number of applicants to a particular school exceeds the number of available spaces, students are selected via random lottery. Requests are not granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note: students granted a school transfer are not provided with District transportation.
