    • If you are submitting a registration form to a school that is not the student's school of residence, and the student lives within the Petaluma City Schools district boundaries, complete an intra district transfer* form and include it with the registration packet.

    • If you are submitting a registration form to a school that is not your student's school of residence, and the student does not live within the Petaluma City Schools district boundaries, complete an inter district transfer* form and include it with the registration packet.
