Student Transfer Process


1.  Applicants may apply for a transfer for the upcoming school year between March 1st and May 1st of the 
    current school year. Late applicants must submit an extenuating circumstance for submitting an application 
    after May 1st.
2.  A file is created by the student transfer technician of each applicant’s transfer request, current grades, 
    attendance and behavior.
3.  Board Policy #4132, Student Transfers, is referred to as each applicant’s request is considered by the Director of Student Assignment.
4.  A notification letter is sent to the parent requesting the student transfer, outlining the approval or denial of 
    the request. A copy of the notification letter is also sent to the principal of the base or current school and the 
    school that was requested on the transfer application.
5.  If the student transfer was approved, the parent has two weeks from the date of the letter to accept the 
    transfer.  If the student transfer was denied, the parent may appeal in writing to the Asst. Superintendent of 
    Student Services.
6.  The Asst. Superintendent of Student, Family and Community Services reviews the file and renders a 
    decision to uphold or overturn administration’s decision. 
7.  A certified decision/notification letter is sent to the parent of the student requesting the transfer.
8.  The parent may appeal in writing to the Board for a review of the decision.  The Board liaison arranges a 
    20-minute meeting between the parent(s) and a three member Board panel. The parent(s) is provided the 
    opportunity to discuss his or her reasons for the appeal and the Board panel may ask questions for further 
    consideration and understanding.
9. The Board panel votes to uphold or overturn administration’s decision. Then the item is placed on the 
    Board agenda for a review and vote by the full Board. A majority vote will uphold or overturn 
    administration’s decision.
10. A decision/notification letter is sent by the Board Liaison to the parent(s) outlining the full Board’s decision 
    of the student transfer.
