Permit Process Information

In order for your student to attend a school outside of their district, you need to obtain a permit of release from Centinela Valley Union High School District and a permit of acceptance at desired school/district.

Please contact CVUHSD Pupil Personnel Services Office starting the end of April to request a permit application.

High School Articulation



Students from Will Rogers have several options where to attend high school.  In addition to the local Centinela Valley High Schools, there are a variety of charter and private schools in the area.  The counselors assist 8th grade families through the process of learning about the different high school options, meeting the application requirements and selecting the best school for the 9th grade. We encourage students to apply to at least three high schools!

Ms. Swick will be visiting the classrooms in November to present your students with high school information. Students and parents are encouraged to review the upcoming events and deadlines list below, as it changes periodically. Feel free to contact Ms. Swick in the counseling office if you have any questions.
