Parent Initiated Transfer Forms

January 1st through the 21st is the district’s window for filling out Parent Initiated Transfer Forms. If you no longer live in the Whittier attendance boundary and would like to have your child continue to attend Whittier Elementary, please be sure to fill out a Parent Initiated Transfer Form. If you have any questions about this form, please contact the Whittier Main Office. Any forms that are received after January 21st, will not be accepted.

We do review all past transfers on an annual basis. Please know that one major factor we consider when reviewing transfers is each child’s attendance record. Please be sure your child regularly attends school.
