    • See the timeline for application process.
    • It is the parent’s responsibility to complete a new transfer request each year if their child is attending a school outside their home attendance area school/district.
    • In order to ensure ample space for students residing in each school’s service area, the district will establish selective transfer limits or restrictions for some schools. 
    • New students will not be registered at the requested school until the transfer process is completed and the parent and school have received notification of an approved transfer request.
