    Please note that campus capacity may vary by grade level.

     

    Due to pending enrollment numbers, all Kindergarten transfer requests will be placed on a wait-list through the beginning of the Fall semester.  Parents are required to enroll their child at their home campus until a transfer decision is processed and communicated to you in August (likely after school begins).  Because a vast majority of the information communicated is aligned, please allow your child to participate in Meet the Teacher Night and attend the campus zoned for the primary residence of the parent or legal guardian.

     

    When reviewing petitions for student transfers, the district will consider each request on an individual basis; however, the regulations below are in place to ensure consistency in our process.  The transfer petitions will be considered by the Board’s designee during the specified window each year. If the designee denies the transfer request, the parent may file an appeal to the Superintendent’s designee during the open appeal window (Secondary only). 

     

    A transfer request is a privilege.  An approved transfer to a specific elementary school does not guarantee approval to a specific middle school, just as a transfer approval to a specific middle school does not guarantee approval to a specific high school.
