The Board recognizes that students who reside in one district may choose to attend school in another district and that such choices are made for a variety of reasons.
Upon request by students' parents/guardians, the Superintendent or designee is authorized to approve or deny School District of Choice and/or Interdistrict Attendance Agreements with other districts on a case by case basis to meet individual student needs in accordance with established district policy and regulations.
Please follow the instructions below based on your transfer request:
