Middle School Transfer Requests

Middle School Transfer requests may may be submitted February 3 through February 28. Families must complete a separate form for each student. 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.
