Intra-District Transfer/Choice Policy

At its regular meeting on March 12, 2018, the School Board approved a resolution to repurpose Fox Ridge Elementary School as an early childhood center and to change elementary school boundaries beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.

At that same meeting, the School Board voted to modify the Intra-District Transfer/Choice policy for elementary schools. As part of the new process, the District is assigning all elementary students to the school within their attendance area for the 2018-2019 school year. This includes elementary students currently attending a school on an intra-district transfer. The policy also requires that families complete an application on an annual basis and changes the application period from the summer to the spring.

Beginning this year, as a way to assist both families and schools with their planning needs, the District has changed the application window to April. In addition, a new on-line request form has been created that will time stamp applications. Therefore, neither the old forms nor emails will be accepted.

An Intra-District Transfer Request must be submitted online no sooner than 8:00 AM on the first Tuesday following Spring Break (April 3, 2018) and no later than 4:00 PM on the third Monday following Spring Break (April 16, 2018).  A link to the request form will be posted on the District 303 webpage by 8:00 AM on April 3, 2018.

If you are requesting a transfer for more than one child, a separate request must be submitted for each. Due to fluctuating class sizes at each grade level, siblings are not guaranteed placement. Please note:

  • A new request must be submitted each year beginning the week after spring break
  • If granted, transportation is the responsibility of the parents
