First consideration deadline for accepting student transfer requests for the 2017-18 school year will be March 10, 2017 for all grades, K through 12. Requests received after the deadline may not be considered until the week of August 28. Requests submitted after August 23 will be reviewed after September 13 when actual enrollment counts are in. A student transfer request form may be completed and submitted online from the district’s website beginning January 4, 2017. All transfer requests for 2017-18 will be done electronically.
If the request is submitted by March 10, parents will be notified by April 15 if the request has been approved or denied. Approval or denial of transfer requests will be based on established criteria outlined in board policy and procedure 3131 and 3141. Parents will provide transportation for students who voluntarily attend a school outside their attendance area. For more information, call Mary Ann Mulloy-White at 683-6012 for secondary or Rayna Messer at 683-6014 for elementary.
Students who are currently approved for in-district student transfers do not have to complete a new form unless they are changing from elementary to middle school or middle school to high school.
