INTRA-DISTRICT TRANSFER APPROVAL CRITERIA

Transfer applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis and are based on the following criteria:

 
There is adequate capacity in the school (acceptance of the transfer should not cause a hardship on resident          students).
 
The student demonstrates regular attendance, academic effort, and conformance with school disciplinary standards.
 
The parent is willing and able to provide timely transportation. (District transportation is provided only if desired school is within their attendance area).
 
The school offers a program suitable to meet the educational and other needs of the student.

If the student on an approved transfer does not meet these criteria, the principal will communicate expectations to the parent and student, and the transfer may be revoked.
