Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment applications for the 2022-2023 school year will not be accepted after December 23, 2022.

All students who are currently enrolled and attending school in PUSD are eligible to participate in the open enrollment process.  Current students may apply for enrollment to a school other than their resident school.  Applications are accepted on a space-available basis.

Two recent (within the last 30 days) proofs of residence in the Pleasanton Unified School District are required. Acceptable proofs of residency are listed on the bottom of the open enrollment form and should be attached to the open enrollment request at the time of submission.

For consideration of the 2023-24 school year, Student Services will begin accepting open enrollment applications January 1, 2023.  All applications must  be submitted by email submission at [email protected] no later than January 31, 2023. Applications submitted after this date will still be reviewed following the priority schedule below:

Open Enrollment Dates

Priority 1 Open Enrollment 1/1/23-1/31/23

(Notified after 3/1/23)


Priority 2 Open enrollment 2/1/23-5/1/23

(Notified after 6/1/23)


Priority 3 Open Enrollment 5/2/23-6/15/23

(Notified after 6/15/23)


After 6/16/23 :

  • Applications received during this time will be processed on a space availability basis.
  • Notification of placement for all grades will be addressed after the start of the school year.
All applications received within each submission window will be treated the same.  There is not a first come, first-served advantage.

Pleasanton Schools may be impacted by school site and/or grade level, and this often varies from school year to school year. Some open enrollment requests may not be approved due to impacted schools, which means there is not a seat available in that grade level.

Family Residential Moves

When parents move, they must inform the school within five (5) days. Students whose parents move within the Pleasanton Unified School District may either remain at the school they have been attending if it is not considered an "impacted school"; or register in the school in their new attendance area. If the former school of residence is considered an "impacted school," a continuing open enrollment form must be completed to determine if the student may remain at the school for the remainder of that academic year. At the end of the academic year, parents must complete an open enrollment form. The definition of an "impacted school" is a school in which enrollment exceeds staff allocation. 

For parents who move out of the Pleasanton Unified School District, but would like their child(ren) to continue attending school in Pleasanton, they must submit an Interdistrict transfer (IDT) form to Student Services. The Director of Student Services reviews each IDT request on a case by case basis.

To initiate the Interdistrict Transfer (IDT), the parent needs to contact their new district of residence to pick up the form. Approval of Interdistrict transfers is based on space availability and is not automatic.
