What is an IDA?

An Inter-district attendance transfer (IDA) agreement is needed when parents/legal guardians wish to enroll their student(s) at a school that is outside of the district in which they reside. IDA's are required when parents wish to enroll their students into an LUSD school, but physically reside in another district's boundaries. IDA's are also required for LUSD residents wishing to enroll their children in outside districts.

California Education Code sections 46600-46601 permits parents/guardians to request an inter-district attendance transfer (IDA) agreement. The fundamental basis for this provision is the signing of an agreement between districts. An IDA agreement must be approved by, both, the student’s original district of residence and the district to which the student seeks to transfer. Both districts must approve the agreement before it becomes valid. The agreement is for one year only and includes terms and conditions. It is within the authority of either the home district or the receiving district to revoke an IDA agreement at any time for any reason either district deems appropriate.



The Child Welfare and Attendance office does not handle INTRA-District Transfers.  Those transfers are from school to school within the District and are handled by the school site principals.  If you want your child to go to a school other than their attendance area school within the District, you must start the process at your child's attendance area school first.  Once reviewed by the principal of the attendance area school, if approved, the attendance area school will forward to the school that is being requested.  Please note that there is a deadline for filing these transfer requests, please check with your attendance area school for that date.


What is SARB?

SARB was established by the California legislature in 1975 for the purposes of:

Making a better effort to meet the needs of students with attendance or behavior problems.  Promoting the use of alternatives to the juvenile court system. To achieve these goals, the legislation provides for a multi-agency. 

SARB may include the following agencies:

  • Children’s Services
  • Law Enforcement
  • Community-Based Organizations
  • School-Based Services
  • District Attorney’s Office 

SARB process begins with the identification of attendance and/or behavior concerns followed by classroom, school and district level interventions.

SARB is specifically charged with finding solutions to unresolved student attendance and discipline problems by bringing together, on a regular basis, representatives of agencies that make up the SARB Panel. SARB further surveys available community resources, determine the appropriateness of their services, and makes recommendations to meet the needs of referred students.

SARB seeks to understand why students are experiencing attendance and behavior problems, and serves as a vehicle to correct those problems.
