The deadline for submitting a request to attend a school outside the attendance boundary of residence shall be May 1.
Taking into consideration growth estimates for the upcoming year, principals shall establish available slots for each grade level for school choice intradistrict transfers.
Parents will be notified of the status of the application in a timely fashion and no later than August 1 prior to the beginning of the respective school year.
Parents shall be responsible for transportation for a student who chooses to attend school outside his or her attendance area through the school choice intradistrict transfer policy.
