    Although students generally must attend school in the district and school where their residence has been established, the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) Board of Education recognizes justifiable reasons for interdistrict permits. Upon request, the Superintendent or designee may accept students from other districts who seek to enroll in SMMUSD.

    Interdistrict Permit FAQs

    How can eligible families apply for new Interdistrict Permits?
    Students who reside outside the boundaries of SMMUSD may apply to attend school in SMMUSD on an interdistrict permit (interdistrict transfer release) from their school of residence. This information applies to students who do not live in Santa Monica or Malibu who seek to enroll in a SMMUSD school.

    Approval is subject to space, budget and staff availability; and the terms and conditions stipulated in BP 5117. All applications will be treated in a fair and consistent manner. Student Services will notify applicants who are approved for an interdistrict transfer and applicants whose applications are denied.

    What about students already in the district on a permit?
    All students currently attending on an interdistrict permit will be allowed to remain in the District until they leave or graduate, assuming that they uphold appropriate standards of behavior and attendance.
