You may apply for an interdistrict transfer with the Oakland Unified School District, but a closer proximity to a different school district is usually not a reason that they'll grant a transfer. Transfers are generally permitted due to employment, childcare, or continuing in the same school even though the student does not live in that schoolâ€™s city. If you wish to try and exit the OUSD for the Piedmont school district you should bring documentation supporting your request to the Student Assignment Office.
Also, If you don't feel that your neighborhood school is right for you, you may apply to other elementary schools with in Oakland through the OUSD open enrollment program. Oakland has some excellent elementary schools with scores comparable to Piedmont. (look at the website, http://www.greatschools.net
