Request for Elementary School Re-Assignment

Elementary students shall attend the school that servers the address which they reside.  When extenuating circumstances exist, the administration may transfer students to another school following the administrative procedures outlined in Policy 5120.  These administrative procedures are intended to bring about uniform district-wide application of this policy while still enabling the administration to deal with specific, unique district or family conditions.

Families requesting a transfer to a school outside of their designated school for the current school year due to a change in residence shall fill out the form that is found here.  The request must start with this form, which is routed to the necessary administrators within the district based on the current elementary school selected and the requested elementary school selected.  If the transfer is approved, transportation of the student to and from school is the responsibility of the parents/guardians.  If transportation is not able to be consistently provides as required, the request may be denied or revoked.  The approved request applies only for the remainder of the current school year.  The student will attend the designated school that serves their address the year after the exception.

Families requesting to transfer to a school outside of their designated school for the FOLLOWING school year shall use the same procedure as listed above but must complete the request form no later than April 1st.

Parents/Guardians will receive written notification (in the form of an email) of approval or denial of their request within 5 business days.  If the transfer is denied, the parents/guardians may appeal the decision to the Director of Pupil Services.  The appeal must be completed within 10 days.  The email that is sent if the request has been denied will contain the link to the appeal form.
