This option is available to a student who wishes to attend a school other than the one in his or her attendance area. Transfers are made through application only and are determined by lottery based on space availability. Transportation to the new school is the responsibility of the parent or guardian.
Applications that are received after the deadline are filed according to the date they are received. If space becomes available in the requested school, parents will be notified during the summer. Students on waiting lists are placed before late applications.
