Student Hardship Transfer Request Available March 15 – May 15

Parents may request a Hardship Transfer, in very rare cases with extreme or unusual circumstances. In such cases, parents or guardians may request assignment to a school outside of their regular attendance area.  These requests are carefully reviewed and rarely granted.  Transfer requests made to attend another school during the school year are reviewed on space availability, the needs of the student, the effect on the school to which the transfer is requested, principal recommendations, and the allowable reasons for reassignment/transfer.  It is important to provide supporting information or evidence of extreme or unusual circumstances. If your hardship request is based on a student medical or psychological reason, you will need to submit completed Medical and Mental Health Psychological Hardship Information Form and a Release of Information for Hardship Request Form for School Transfer. Transportation is not provided.


Student Hardship Renewal Request Available March 15 – May 15

All hardship transfers must be renewed annually. Requests for renewed hardship transfers will be forwarded to principals for consideration. Transfer students must have met the conditions for renewal outlined in Policy 4115 listed above. Transportation is not provided.
