• Transferring to the Hood River County School District


    There are three (3) ways to attend the Hood River County School District (HRCSD) if you reside outside of Hood River County. If you have questions regarding these processes, please contact Terri Martz at 541-387-5013 or email at terri.martz@hoodriver.k12.or.us.

    * To Transfer from another school district (Non-Resident Inter District Transfer)
    The HRCSD Board of Directors has approved up to 20 students be permitted to attend our schools through Inter District Transfer. A student wishing to attend the HRCSD must first obtain a "release" from their resident Oregon school district. The resident school district may deny the request for a release, which would effectively block and conclude this request. Forms should be obtained from your resident district. If released for transfer by his/her resident district, you may request the HRCSD approve the transfer to a specific school by calling Terri Martz at the Superintendent's Office at 541-387-5013. The request will be evaluated based on space at the requested school and grade level. Transfers will not be considered for students currently expelled from their resident school. Inter District Transfer is available to Oregon residents only.

    * Open Enrollment Transfer
    The Oregon legislature established Open Enrollment between school districts to support school choice beginning in the 2012-2013 school year. The original statute allowing Open Enrollment ends with the 2018-2019 school year. 2018-2019 Open Enrollment closed on April 1, 2018 statewide. Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, Open Enrollment is no longer allowed under state law.

    Oregon will require that anyone requesting to transfer to a non-resident district be released by the resident district before requiring placement from the preferred district. This is called an "Interdistrict Transfer". See above.

    If my child was accepted under Open Enrollment, can he or she stay? Yes. If your child was previously accepted under open enrollment, they may stay through graduation unless they enroll in another district. If your child enrolls in another district, they may no longer return under Open Enrollment.


    Resident students may apply using the open enrollment process (see Open Enrollment above) to attend a different school in the district. Click here for procedures and forms.  Please note: For best results, please use Internet Explorer browser.
