With School Choice, you have the option to request that your child attend any school within the district. There is some paperwork to fill out and it is subject to approval. But from what I understand, it mainly has to do with space availability at the school you are transferring to. I’ve heard from people who have done it that it’s a rather painless procedure.

Depending on the needs of your child, you may decide that you’d prefer to switch to another school district. In that case, you can request an Interdistrict Transfer. For example, let’s say you live in Agoura Hills, but you would really like your kids to go to Westlake High. There are two items you need to make that happen. First, you need a release from your current district, and second, you need acceptance from your desired district.
It’s certainly not a guarantee that you will be granted either. If the school you are requesting the release needs students, it may reject your request. And if the school you are requesting is full or not accepting transfers, then you’re out of luck.

Eligibility and rules can change at any time, so please make sure you investigate with the school districts before making a decision on where to live.
