Generally, transfers are granted for documented travel, safety, or medical hardship. Students at some schools are also eligible to transfer through the Public School Choice program.
If you want to transfer your child to a different public school, you can discuss the need for transfer with a staff member at your child’s school or at a Registration Center. Schools are required to meet with families to review transfer requests and provide supporting documentation when a transfer is warranted. Parents must then bring the required documentation to a Registration Center. Once the completed documents are submitted, staff will review the request, and if approved, will identify a different placement that addresses the request.
