Transferring a student to another school

  • Each student in NTPS is required to attend school based upon the boundary in which they reside.
    If a student wishes to attend a school they do not live in the boundaries of (inside or outside NTPS), they must follow the transfer process. Forms must be submitted by a parent or guardian. Per NTPS Policy 3131 and 3141.
    The transfer requst must be submitted annually if the student wishes to continue to a school other than their home school.
    In order to ensure space for residential students, the district will restrict or limit transfers at some schools.
    Students will not be registered at the requested school until the transfer process is completed and the parents & school have been notified.

Intra-District Transfers

    • All Intra-District Transfers (moving schools inside NTPS) must be submitted through Skyward Family Access. Obtain login information from your home school. If you are unable to submit a request electronically from home, there are kiosks available at Student Records or at your home school office.
    • No paper forms will be accepted. Your request will not be time-stamped until the request is made through Family Access.
    • Parents will be notified of a decision via letter within 45 days of receipt of request.
