Voluntary School Transfer Option to attend Lexington Trails Middle School or De Soto High School for the 2016-17 school year

Dear Parents/Guardians:


The school district is now accepting voluntary transfer requests for students to attend Lexington Trails Middle School or De Soto High School for the 2016-17 school year. This option is available for students who reside within the attendance areas of Mill Valley High School, Monticello Trails Middle School or Mill Creek Middle School.


This voluntary transfer option is only for students who desire to attend LTMS or DHS.


We ask that you please consider letting us know of your decision to transfer by Friday, April 15 to allow our schools time to effectively prepare for the new school year. While requests will still be accepted after April 15, please know that decisions regarding voluntary transfers (after April 15) may be granted on a space available basis.


If you are undecided about transferring, we encourage you to take advantage of Parent Information Nights (for incoming 6th and 9th grade students) at LTMS and DHS to help make a decision for your family.


If you decide to voluntarily transfer, please use the following link to download and print the Intra-District Transfer Request form (PDF). Link >> http://bit.ly/1LbGLca

  1. The transfer request form makes reference to the current procedure regarding bus transportation for transfer students. Please familiarize yourself with that information.
  2. New! For 2016-17: We are taking steps to waive the transportation fee for DHS/LTMS transfer students. We will keep you advised.
  3. Please check the box “Enrollment Balancing” as the reason for the transfer request. Once the form is complete, please send to your current school principal for processing.


Again, this voluntary transfer option is only for students who desire to attend Lexington Trails Middle School or De Soto High School.


Sincerely,

USD 232 Administration
