PARENT SURVEY - WE VALUE YOUR FEEDBACK
We are almost there. We just need 12 more parents to take the survey. Please consider taking the survey at https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/. THANK YOU!
MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFER REQUESTS
Families who wish to submit Middle School Transfer requests may do so beginning February 3. The request form will be available on the District 303 website through February 28. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want transferred. Requests are granted based on space available so siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.
