Transfers

 

Transferring In

The parent/guardian should request from the previous school that the following be forwarded: official transcript, remainder of the school records and a completed good standing form. The student shall be admitted pending the receipt of these records. If the records are not received, the principal or designee shall request the records from the transferring school. If the parent/guardian is unable to present the records, the student shall be admitted and the principal shall request the records from the transferring school.

A student seeking to transfer into the District must serve the entire term of any suspension or expulsion, imposed for any reason by any public or private school, in this or any other state, before being admitted into the District.

The principal or designee shall make the class or grade level assignment, and may accept or reject the transferring school’s recommendations.

 

Transferring Out

Parents/guardians of students who will be transferring from the district should notify the principal in writing and indicate the date of their last day, new address, and the name and address of the school to which they will be transferring. They must also pay outstanding fees or fines, sign a release form, and return all school-owned property.

The student will receive a transfer form on the last day. All records will be mailed to the new school upon receipt of a release form signed by the parent. 

Parent(s)/guardian(s) will receive prior written notice of the nature and substance of the records proposed to be released and an opportunity to review and copy them.

The principal shall complete a good standing form for any student transferring from the District. Within 10 days of a transfer notification, the principal shall send to the District in which the student will or has enrolled, a completed good standing form, an unofficial record of the student’s grades, and the remainder of the student’s school records. If a transferring student was suspended or expelled for any of the reasons listed previously in this policy, and the period of suspension or expulsion has not expired at the time the student attempts to transfer into another public school, any school student records required to be transferred shall include the date and duration of the suspension or expulsion.

Within 10 days after the student has paid all outstanding fines and fees, the principal shall mail an official transcript of the scholastic records. Any refunds of money paid for fees are handled by the district business office.
