Ridgefield Boundaries and Enrollment Options
Ridgefield School District Boundaries can be determined by viewing detailed information about a property using the link to Clark County Property Information Center or by calling the (360) 619-1309.
In some circumstances, parents may want to transfer their students to other schools within or outside of the district in which they live. Parents have the opportunity of two boundary exceptions.
In-District Boundary Transfers
Parents of elementary students living in Ridgefield can request their student attend the school that is not their in-district, neighborhood school by filling out an In-District Boundary Transfer request. In-District Boundary Transfers will be accepted beginning April 9th through May 1st at the Ridgefield School District Office. Requests received after the May 1st deadline will be placed on a waiting list and may not be processed until the end of August. If a student is accepted, the student's parent/guardian is responsible for providing transportation for the accepted student. New students must register at their resident elementary school prior to applying for an In-District Boundary Transfer. Requests are considered on a space-available basis within the grade level, class or program. Requests are also considered in the order of the date and time the requests are received, are approved for one year and are not guaranteed to be approved the following year.
Choice Transfer (Out-of-District) Requests
Students living in Ridgefield can request to attend a school in another school district. Additionally, student living outside of the district boundaries can request to attend a Ridgefield school using a Choice Transfer Request. Choice Transfer requests both into and out of Ridgefield will be accepted beginning May 1st. All Choice Transfer requests must be renewed each year. A copy of the signed request releasing a student may need to be taken to the receiving school. Requests are considered on a space-available basis within the grade level, class or program. Requests are also considered in the order of the date and time the requests are received, are approved for one year and are not guaranteed to be approved the following year. Transportation is the responsibility of the parent or guardian.
A Parent or Guardian who chooses to home school their student in lieu of attendance or enrollment in a public school, approved private school or an alternative program, must file an annual Declaration of Intent to Provide Home Based Instruction. This statement must be filed annually by September 15th or within two weeks of the beginning of any quarter, trimester or semester.
