Intra-District and Inter-District Variances

There are two types of variances available:

Inter-District: Inter-District Variances are used when a family lives in a county other than Douglas, but would like to attend a Douglas County School. 

Intra-District: Intra-District Variances are used when a family resides in Douglas County, but wants to attend a school they are not zoned for.

DCSD has entered in agreements with all bordering school districts (including Alpine County Unified School District) to convert the paper process to an electronic process.  Below you will find the appropriate forms and instructions for both types of variances.

Please remember that the Site Principal can approve or deny any variance request.  A new variance application must be completed and submitted each school year.  Generally, school sites begin accepting variance request during the summer months for the upcoming school year, in order to ensure their site has the capability of servicing that student based on enrollment.
