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))
