Students who want to attend a school other than their assigned school next fall (2021-2022 school year) must apply for an in-district transfer (IDT) between March 1 and March 31, 2021. This includes elementary, middle and high school students.

If your student already has an approved IDT, you do not need to fill out the application unless your student will be moving from fifth grade to sixth grade, or from eighth grade to ninth grade.

There is no guarantee a transfer request will be approved. Students attending school on an IDT are not eligible for bus transportation. IDT applications received after March 31, 2021, will not be considered.

In-District Transfer Process Between Schools

The in-district transfer window is open from March 1-31.
