Intra-District Transfer Request Deadline Extended

Due to the statewide school closure, the deadline for INTRA-District Transfer Requests, also known as Out of Zone Transfer Requests, has been extended to May 20, 2020. Parents or guardians of students living within the Coos Bay School District (CBSD), entering K-6th grade, may request that their child attend a school out of their attendance boundary with the procedures and form found at this link. A new intra-district transfer requests must be submitted or reviewed each year. Students who apply for an intradistrict transfer and are not accepted at the time of application because of space availability or Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA) transfers will be placed on a waiting list determined by an equitable lottery process, and the criteria set in the procedures (JECBB-AR). Transfer requests due to daycare location will no longer be an acceptable reason for transfer as the District will review transportation requests to daycare throughout the district. School attendance boundary maps can be found at this link. Please note, non-resident students or students living outside of the CBSD, who have been approved on an INTER-district transfer (IDT) do not need to resubmit a new IDT request unless you have left the CBSD and want to return. If you have questions, please contact your school and leave a message.


Coos Bay Schools Change Grade-spans for 2020-2021

Beginning in the 2020-21 school year, the Coos Bay School District is re-configuring the grade-spans among the K-7th grades. Eastside School, formerly Blossom Gulch, and Madison School will become Kindergarten through 2nd grade schools. Millicoma and Sunset will become 3rd through 6th grade schools. Seventh graders will form half of the new Marshfield Junior High School temporarily housed in the Blossom Gulch building while their new school is being built. By May 15, please let your school secretaries or teacher know if you have moved, will move, or need to update your information. Students currently enrolled in the district will roll over to their next grade and corresponding school automatically. Registration information and forms can be found at this link.
