WELCOME!

Thank you for your interest in enrolling in the San Dieguito Union High School District. Our teachers, administrators, and support staff are committed to excellence for our district families and students in grades 7-12.
 
SDUHSD enrolls all students who currently reside within district attendance boundaries. Please review the School Locator & Boundaries Map and Board Policy 5111.1 which outlines district residency criteria. The district does not accept international exchange students and does not participate in the I-20 program. We hope to make the enrollment process as efficient as possible.

Interest List

Residency Verification/Data Confirmation

ANNUAL RESIDENCY VERIFICATION
 
Each year, an Annual Residency Verification Affidavit must be submitted by each family along with two proofs of residency as listed in the affidavit. This process is a legal requirement in California, and it helps the District ensure that all available resources are spent efficiently and effectively to the benefit of SDUHSD families. State law requires that the District administer a Housing Questionnaire yearly. The information provided below will help the District determine what services you and/or your child may be eligible to receive. The information provided on this form will be kept confidential and only shared with the appropriate district and school staff. These additional steps help provide a full and precise accounting of our student population as we review staffing for the upcoming school year.
 
2023-2024 ANNUAL RESIDENCY VERIFICATION
SDUHSD mandatory Annual Residency Verification window opens January 17, 2023 for all 7th -11th grade students currently enrolled in the District who plan to return in the 2023-2024 school year.
 
Acceptable residency verification documentation must be received by March 17, 2023 in order to schedule classes for next year. Students who select an academy high school during the 2023-2024 High School Selection window, and have been approved to attend, are required to submit acceptable residency verification documentation by the March 17, 2023 enrollment deadline. 
  • Parents may electronically submit the Annual Residency Verification Affidavit / Housing Questionnaire in English or Spanish and two proofs of residency documents using their Aeries parent portal account by uploading the documentation. Click here for an Aeries Parent Portal Uploading Tutorial English or Spanish designed to walk parents through the process of uploading residency documentation using their parent portal. 
  • SDUHSD families with more than one student currently enrolled in the District and planning to return next year, will only need to provide one residency verification per family.  
  • SDUHSD families with incoming 7th graders will need to submit duplicate residency verification, one for the currently enrolled student(s) and one for the incoming 7th grade student.
  • If the student(s) will not be returning in the 2023-2024 school year, please notify the School Registrar as soon as possible.

Intradistrict and Interdistrict Transfers

INTRADISTRICT TRANSFERS
 
An intradistrict transfer is when a parent/guardian wishes to enroll their student(s) at a SDUHSD school other than the designated school that is in their residential attendance area within the district. 
 
PLEASE NOTE - A student’s designated school boundary is based on where the student resides, not what elementary school the student presently attends. Please check the district’s school locator boundary map with your residential address for your boundary school.
 
Please click here to review the:

High School Selection

SDUHSD has 4 comprehensive high schools, two academies and two boundary schools, as well as a continuation high school. For grades 9-12, all students may attend their residential boundary school.
