There are important changes to the student transfer process for the 2017-18 school year.
Please click here to read about these important changes.
Change of Address:
Accepted after the first day of school,students are allowed to stay in their current school for the duration of the school year based on space availability and good attendance. To stay the next year, parents must apply during the annual open transfer window.
For daily child-care purposes, students in kindergarten through sixth grade may be approved to attend a school other than the school serving their boundary. The single head of household or both heads of household, must be employed or attending school full time, which necessitates the requested child-care service be located outside the child's boundary service area.
*Please note this application is ONLY for the 2016-17 school year. We are not accepting child care transfer requests for the 2017-18 school year at this time. Please see above for information on the 2017-18 Student Transfer Process.
Do you need assistance?
**Please note: if your student is approved for a transfer to a non-boundary school, transportation will be the responsibility of the family. **
