     TRANSFER REQUESTS FOR 2020-21

    First consideration deadline for accepting student transfer requests for the 2020-21 school year will be March 6, 2020 for all grades, K through 12. Requests received after the deadline may not be considered until the week of August 24. Requests submitted after August 24 will be reviewed after September 18 when actual enrollment counts are in.  All transfer requests for 2020-21 will be done electronically. 

    Parents will be notified by May 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. Students who are currently approved for in-district transfers, do not have to complete a new form unless they are changing from elementary to middle school or middle school to high school.
