5th grade transition to Middle School information
Dear 5th Grade Parents:
We hope your student is having a great year at Yerba Buena Elementary! Now is the time to plan for your student’s enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year.
This year, all current 5th grade students will be assigned to Lindero Canyon Middle School for 6th grade, 2022-2023.
Would your student prefer a different Middle School in the district?
If you wish your student to attend another middle school in the district, you will need to complete a School of Choice permit. To apply for a SOC permit, go to www.lvusd.org/schoolofchoice and follow the instructions. The SOC application window is November 22, 2021 to February 1, 2022. Applying for a School of Choice permit is not a guarantee of transfer to the requested school, but we will make every effort to accommodate the request.
Are you attending on an Interdistrict Transfer Permit (IDT):
If your student is attending Yerba Buena on an Interdistrict Transfer Permit, you have already been released from your home district and approved to attend Las Virgenes. Therefore, parents do not need to reapply for an Interdistrict Transfer Permit to attend Lindero Canyon unless there is a change in your home address.
Please note when your student gets to the 8th grade:
All students who are currently attending under a School of Choice or Interdistrict permit , MAY be required to fill out a new school of choice request, whenever they matriculate to a new school level. If your student is in good standing, you are assured placement at one of our LVUSD campuses. We need this application to allocate spots as there is not a guarantee of transfer to the requested school. We will make every effort to accommodate the request.
Are you planning on leaving LVUSD?
If you would like your student to attend a private middle school or you are moving to another area and school district, please notify the main office at Yerba Buena so your student’s records can be transferred properly.
If you are a current resident and wish to attend another public school district, you must apply for a permit to be released from LVUSD. To apply for an outgoing permit go to www.lvusd.org/permits scroll to the bottom and select Interdistrict Permits (outgoing) and follow the instructions. The Outgoing application window is November 22, 2021 to February 1, 2022.
If you have any questions regarding the process, please contact Ali in the Permits Department.
