IDT applications received after March 31, 2018, will not be considered.


Current students who want to attend a school other than their assigned home school next fall (2018-19 school year) musapply for IDT between March 1 and 31, 2018.


More information on the in-district transfer process can be found on the Student Transfers page on the district website, http://www.salemkeizer.org/parents/student-transfers.


Special note for fifth grade students entering sixth grade in September: 

IDT request forms can be picked up at any middle school office, and must be completed and returned to the student’s assigned middle school during the application date window.
