Can you explain the transfer request process?听What are the considerations?

Requests for both in district (attendance area) and non-resident (out of district) transfers can be submitted beginning Feb. 15 for the following year.

Families who submit a transfer request between Feb. 15-March 1 will be notified of a decision by the end of March. Receiving transfer requests during this priority time period helps us to equitably plan for staffing at our schools. Transfer requests submitted after March 1 may not receive notification of a decision until right before or even up to the fifth day of the start of school based on enrollment, staffing and other factors.听

Fill out and 听electronically or print and submit to the main office of the school you are requesting to attend.听

Factors we consider when听making a decision听about a transfer request include a听financial, educational, safety or health condition听affecting the student; proximity to a parent鈥檚 place of work or childcare; parent/guardian is a district employee and other special circumstances.听

Are there any factors听families听should be aware of before requesting a transfer?听

  • Requests are approved based on space and capacity.
  • Families are responsible for their own transportation for transferred students.
  • Transfer requests are reevaluated every year and placement听is听not guaranteed.

Because we need to evaluate enrollment numbers prior to accepting new transfers, transfer requests may be held for review in the fall (policy 3131). We may not be able to provide a response to a request until right before the start of the school year or up to the fifth day of school.听Principals will determine the number of places available no later than the fifth day of school (procedure 3131).

My child has a sibling who attended the school in our old attendance area. Does that help my chances of getting my transfer request approved?

We consider siblings currently enrolled at a school and want to keep siblings together. However, if older siblings听no longer attend that school, it would not be a contributing factor for approval.听
