Home Parents Transfer Requests

Transfer Requests

Transfers are required for students to attend a school other than their “home school” – the school assigned based on the parent/guardian’s legal address of residence.

If you wish to attend your home school, simply enroll at the school with the necessary paperwork. Your new school will arrange for an exchange of records from the previous school.

See related Board Policies (JECB, JECB-AR(1), JECB-AR(2), JECC, JECC-AR(1), JECC-AR(2))

Per School Board Policy JECC-AR(1):  “Any student in attendance at a district school due to bonafide legal residency whose residence changes to a different district attendance area may choose whether to attend the new neighborhood school or the former school.  Students who move during the school year may remain at the former school upon completion of a transfer application.  Students who move during the summer are permitted to stay upon submission of a transfer application.   Once a student enrolls in the school in the attendance area to which the parent or guardians have moved, it becomes the student’s assigned neighborhood school.”
