Incoming INTER-DISTRICT PERMITS (residents outside district boundaries)

Students who reside outside of PUSD attendance boundaries must upload an Inter-district permit from their district of residence in addition a copy of the students’ most current report card/transcripts, behavior/discipline report and attendance record using SchoolMint.  

 

Your child's permit must be accepted and approved by PUSD for admittance. Permit approval, denial and revocation is based on space availability, satisfactory grades, attendance, and behavior. If a permit is accepted, students are expected to maintain satisfactory attendance, effort, academic achievement, and behavior.  Priority is given to students who reside in a school’s attendance area. 

 

Procedures for Parent(s)/Guardians(s): 

STEP 1: Apply to be released from your home district by visiting your home district’s Permit Office.

    • STEP 2: Create a SchoolMint account at https://pusdschools.schoolmint.net/signup  for Paramount.  You will use this same account for all the students you wish to enroll.  Only one SchoolMint account is required for all members of a family.  This account will remain active for your entire enrollment in Paramount USD.
