UPDATED TRANSFER REQUEST INFORMATION FOR 2023-24

The general transfer window for the fall semester is closed. Per District policy adopted June 2023, only hardship transfers will be accepted in the spring of 2024. Below is part of the policy that pertains to hardship transfers:

Students seeking to transfer to a new school within the same school year may apply for a hardship transfer and, if approved, shall be permitted to transfer at the beginning of the subsequent semester unless otherwise agreed upon by the sending and receiving school. Families may apply for a hardship transfer under the following categories:

  • Childcare: If a family has a change in circumstance that impacts their access to necessary childcare, they may apply for a hardship transfer.
  • Safety: Families with a documented safety issue at a school may apply for a hardship transfer to a different school.
  • Change to Residential Address: If a family moves and their attendance zone has changed, the student may remain in their school through the end of the year or move to their new zoned school.
  • Programmatic/Academic: If a family determines that the programmatic or academic setting of their child's current transfer school is not a good fit, they may apply for a hardship transfer.

Hardship transfer requests shall be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis and may be approved or denied based on the information provided at the time of the request. Barring exigent circumstances, the transfer shall be approved for the upcoming semester. If the circumstances warrant an immediate transfer, the Office of Student Services will work with the family, the sending, and the receiving school to determine the date of transfer.
