The Board of Education has established boundary lines for each attendance center in the school district. Assignment of an individual student to a school will be based on the student's legal residence. All students must transfer between district schools when their residence changes to a different attendance area, unless exempted by the Board of Education. Further, the district maintains the ability to transfer students between schools as needed at the sole discretion of the Board of Education.

Students with disabilities will be assigned to the attendance center that provides the most appropriate educational services for that student. Therefore, students with disabilities may be assigned to attend a school outside the student’s attendance area by the Section 504 team or pursuant to the student’s individualized education program (IEP). Administrators participating in these decisions will notify the admissions office as soon as the decision is made to place a student outside his or her attendance area.

The superintendent or designee may direct the intradistrict transfer of students for the health, safety or welfare of the student, to maintain discipline and safety in the schools, to better meet the educational needs of the student or to address overcrowding in school.

Transfers to Schools Outside Attendance Areas

Students who have previously transferred to a school outside the student's attendance area due to school improvement measures mandated by federal law will be allowed to continue attending the school they transferred to until they have completed the highest grade offered in that school. The district will not continue to provide transportation to these students.

Students enrolled in a school identified as persistently dangerous pursuant to federal and state law may transfer to another public school within the district that has not been so identified. A student who has been a victim of a violent criminal offense on school property as defined by state regulation may, upon request, transfer to another public school in the district. The transfer will be allowed in accordance with law.

Otherwise, students in grades K–4 may request to transfer to a different district school subject to available space and eligibility as determined by the district. Once a student has begun attendance at a school he or she cannot transfer to another school until the next semester begins, unless the student's residence changes to a new attendance area or unless otherwise required by law. The parent/guardian must submit a request to transfer to the district school prior to the beginning of the new semester. The superintendent or his/her designee will develop administrative procedures for accepting and acting upon requests for reassignment.

Employees with children residing in the district may be granted an intradistrict transfer at the high school level subject to available space and eligibility, as determined by the district.

Students granted an intradistrict transfer at the high school level prior to November 12, 2009, will be allowed to remain in their current placement. Siblings of students permitted to remain in their current placement under this paragraph will also be allowed an opportunity to attend that same high school, provided the sibling is born as of August 1, 2010. Families must submit a formal transfer request for siblings.

Transportation will not be provided to students transferring to schools outside the student's attendance area, unless required by law.

The Board of Education shall have the authority to amend or modify any or all provisions of this policy to conform to a change in the law or if, in the judgment and sole discretion of the Board, the best interests of the district so required.
