Open Enrollment - School Transfers

If you live in the NLMUSD attendance area and you choose to have your student attend a different school than what is assigned based on your address, you will need to apply for Open Enrollment from December 1, 2022 to January 31, 2023, applications can be accessed online at This will be your only opportunity to change your student’s school placement. The Intra-district permit process has been eliminated and replaced by Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment permit approvals will be based on enrollment projections and site availability. If there are more requests for a particular school than there are spaces available, a lottery will be held to determine placement. Families will be notified of the status of their application in February 2023.

**Students who currently have an approved permit or Open Enrollment do not need to reapply for the 23-24 school year unless they will be moving from 5th to 6th grade or 8th to 9th grade. Permits and Open Enrollment are only valid K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grades. 

Out of District Permits-
All requests for students to be released from NLMUSD to attend school in another district should be initiated at your school of residence with the site administration, not the NLMUSD District Office. More information can be found at

If you have any questions please feel free to call the school office at 562-210-2945.
