School transfers will be based on capacity, legal address and what is in the best interest of the child (Education Law 2016 Revision). Additionally, all transfers must comply with all other DES policies including those relating to student attendance, academic standards and class size. Failure to supply accurate information could cause your request to be denied. In the event that the application for a transfer is denied, you may request a review of the decision in writing.
If there is another child in the family for whom a transfer request is being request, kindly fill out a form for each child.
All requests for transfers require school leaders (SL) and families to meet and review the request and provide all supporting documentation requested when a transfer is warranted, space permitting. School Leaders of the sending school should review transfer checklist and forward student’s records within 5-10 working days, once a copy of the approved transfer has been received. Where a student has been identified as “AT RISK” the school leader or Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCO) must convene a case conference as part of the transfer process
