Transfer applications are accepted year round. However, after the school year begins, new transfers are approved at the beginning of the next grading cycle.

2. Approved Transfer Requests shall be effective for one school year subject to compliance with all District Policy Requirements and Transfer Guidelines.

3. Transfer Policy provisions may be waived or modified by the Superintendent at his/her discretion based on extenuating circumstances.

4. Students must reapply for a transfer each year.

General Guidelines for Inter-district Transfers

1. Transfer applications will not be approved for students with a record of disciplinary infractions at the sending school.

2. Transfer applications will not be approved for students if approval will result in the District exceeding capacity in any grade level, service, class, or program.

4. Transfer applications may not be approved for students with failing grades from the previous school year or otherwise ineligible for promotion to the next grade.

7. Transfer students must comply with all requirements outlined in the Peaster Student Handbook, including all rules and regulations for student conduct and attendance.

8. Transfer students will not be provided transportation to and from school.
