LSR-7 K-12 Intradistrict Transfer Information and Guidelines
Dear Parent or Guardian:
It is the expectation that all LSR-7 students 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-AP2 should be considered at the time of submission of an Intradistrict Transfer Request and for these reasons only may be approved. Reasons for transfers based upon exceptional circumstances are (see JCB-AP2 for definitions):
- a. Family Move
- b. Request From Outside Agency
- c. Family Hardship
- d. Special Education Programs (Siblings of students placed in special education/English language development programs at a school other than the school of residence may be eligible to transfer to this same school, as long as siblings are receiving special services.)
- e. Psychological, Emotional or Social Needs
- f. Graduating Senior
- g. (Administrative Placement – District Placement Only)
- h. Childcare – Does not apply to high school students. Childcare Affidavit required.
All required documentation must be attached upon submission of the transfer request form. Transportation is the responsibility of the parent. Punctual and regular attendance is expected.
- Bus transportation is not furnished for a student who transfers out of his/her attendance area.
- It may be necessary to close certain schools to outside enrollment due to crowded conditions. Staffing, grade-level and student enrollment factors are taken into consideration in determining which schools/grades must be closed.
- Student discipline issues may necessitate the revocation of an approved transfer at any time during the school year.
- Absences of 15 or more days in a semester or 20 or more days in a school year will result in the student’s transfer status being revoked.
- Fifteen (15) or more late arrivals, early departures and/or late pick-ups in a semester will result in a student’s transfer status being revoked.
- If a student’s transfer status is revoked, he/she is not eligible for an approved transfer in the future.
- Transfers are granted for one year at a time. Parents will need to submit a new request each year.
- An approved transfer at the elementary or middle school level does not automatically allow students to attend the feeder middle or high school.
Elementary transfer requests must be submitted to the Office of the Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education on forms provided by the school district. The transfer request must include specific reasons for the transfer and signatures from the sending and receiving school principals.
Families seeking a transfer must submit their request via the completed LSR-7 K-12 Intradistrict Transfer Request Form with the required supporting documentation. Please begin the transfer process with your child’s school of residence. Forms should be submitted directly to your child’s school.
Transfer requests should be submitted prior to the beginning of the new semester. Granting of such transfer requests will be contingent upon available space and eligibility as determined by the district. Students who have begun attendance at a school cannot transfer to another school until the next semester begins unless their residence changes to a new attendance area or unless otherwise required by law.
Students who are currently on a Superintendent-approved transfer must submit a renewal for the next school year by February 26th in order to be receive “early” approval. Those requests received after February 26th will be held and processed in August, but prior to the first day of school. (See below)
Kindergarten transfers for the following school year will be accepted Kindergarten Kickoff! through the second Friday in May for “early” approval. Those requests received after the that date will be held and processed in August, but prior to the first day of school. (See below)
