  2. When can I apply for Internal Transfer for next school year?
    Review the internal transfer process.
  3. What happens if I have an approved internal transfer for the 2014-15 school year or before?
    Nothing has changed for your child and their transfer.  They continue to follow the rules outlined in the previous version of Board Policy 4023 – Internal Transfers.  For a copy of the policy that applies to internal transfers approved for 2014-15 and before, click HERE. 
  4. If I have an approved internal transfer for the year 2015-2016 and subsequent school years, how often do I need to re-apply?
    Families will have to reapply if they want their children to follow along with their school’s feeder pattern from elementary to middle school if they do not already live in that middle school’s attendance boundary.  The same is true for students moving from middle to high school.
