K-12th INTER-DISTRICT PERMIT APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR
2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR
 
Thank you for your interest in our Manhattan Beach schools. Inter-District  Permit applications for the 2020-2021 school year will be accepted starting February 3, 2020 and ending on April 30, 2020. Only completed applications will be accepted, and must be dropped off in person to our district office located at: 325 S. Peck Avenue Manhattan Beach, Ca 90266. Applications must be received by a student services employee, who will date and time stamp application. Student services will accept completed applications Monday - Friday during the hours of 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. only.
 
The inter-district permit is a two part application - release from district of residence, and acceptance into desired district. Obtain permission to be released from the district in which the student resides by visiting your home district's office and requesting an Inter-District permit release. Obtaining permit release from the school district in which you reside does not mandate acceptance by the Manhattan Beach Unified School District - you must still be accepted within MBUSD to attend.
 
Complete the MBUSD Inter-District Permit application. Attach the permit release from your district of residency and a copy of the student's most current report card showing current grade level (non-kinder applicants). 
 
Bring the completed MBUSD Inter-District Permit application, the permit release, and relevant attachments to Student Services in the MBUSD District Office. Relevant attachments include: Student's most recent report card, Student's most recent IEP or 504 Plan (if applicable - documents must be submitted along with your permit application or it will be considered incomplete and will not be accepted).
 
A determination of all permit applications will be made as soon as possible, but no later than 14 calendar days after the start of the school year for which a family is applying. Letters indicating final decisions of permit request will be sent via regular mail and will include information regarding right to appeal to Los Angeles County Board of Education.
