STUDENT TRANSFER REQUESTS FOR 2022-23
First consideration deadline for accepting student transfer requests for the 2022-23 school year will be March 11, 2022 for all grades, K through 12. Requests received after the deadline may not be considered until the week of August 22. Requests submitted after August 22 will be reviewed after September 16 when actual enrollment counts are in.
All transfer requests for 2022-23 will be done electronically.
If the request is submitted by March 11, 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 policies and procedures 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 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.
