Elementary Intra District Transfer Information and Guidelines
Dear Parent or Guardian:
The majority of elementary students in the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District attend the school within their home attendance area. However, there are reasons families may request to transfer their child to another school. The guidelines related to Board Policy JCB should be considered at the time of submission of an R-7 Elementary School Intradistrict Transfer and for these reasons only may be approved.
⇒ It will be necessary to close school buildings to transfers where staffing, grade level, and/or student enrollment factors meet or exceed capacity. As a result of continued student growth, Hazel Grove Elementary and Mason Elementary are currently closed to all new transfers for the 17-18 school year.
⇒ If approved, transportation to school is the responsibility of the parent/guardian when transportation is necessary outside the boundaries of the school the student will be attending.
⇒ Absences that meet or exceed 25 days can result in revoking a child’s transfer status.
⇒ Occurrences of late arrivals and/or early departures that meet or exceed 15 in a semester can result in revoking a child’s transfer status.
⇒ If approved, transfers will be granted for one school calendar year at a time.
⇒ Parent(s)/guardian(s) must make requests for transfer each year for each student of whom an intradistrict transfer is sought.
⇒ Building administrative signatures must be obtained prior to consideration/decision from the Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Instruction.
⇒ Parent(s)/guardian(s) will be notified of the decision via U.S. mail.
⇒ At the conclusion of the sixth grade year a student will be expected to return to his/her home school of attendance for middle school or refer to Board Policy JCB-AP1 for a secondary transfer.
