INTER District Permit Request

  • INTER District Permit Request

    To request enrollment at a Rosemead School District when you reside outside of Rosemead School District (District to District)

    In order to determine if space is available, Interdistrict students may not be permitted to enroll until you have received approval from RSD.  

    Formal agreements between Rosemead School District and other districts allow for the transfer of one or more students between districts.  An Interdistrict Attendance Permit may be approved into or out of the district for specific reasons only.  Information regarding the specific reasons may be obtained from Special Education & Student Support Services at (626) 312-2900.


    • Permits do not carry transportation privileges.
    • Parents are expected to ensure the student is on time and in school for the full school day every day.

    Please complete the interdistrict permit request process listed below:

    • Step 1: Go to your district of residence and request an interdistrict permit.
    • Step 2: Specify in the “reason section” that you are requesting to leave due to a unique program that is offered. Parents may only request one school in one school district.
    • Step 3: Turn in your completed interdistrict permit to the district you are requesting.
    • Step 4: Once the interdistrict permit is approved by your district of residence, it will be mailed to the Rosemead School District, Special Education & Student Support Services office. You may also request an approved copy from your district of residence to bring directly to Rosemead School District, Special Education & Student Support Services office, which will help expedite your child’s enrollment.
    • Step 5: Upon receiving your interdistrict permit release, Rosemead School District will contact you regarding the next steps.
