Procedure for In-District Transfers

All school-age children must be originally registered at their home school during the annual registration process. The only exceptions to this rule include children enrolled in specialized programming at another District school building.
Parents or legal guardians interested in having their child(ren) attend a school other than their home school must complete an In-District Transfer request form, which is available below, in each District school office, or at the District Administration Center located at 2929 W. 87th Street. The deadline to submit an In-District Transfer request for the 2018-19 school year is August 2, 2018.
In-District Transfer requests are only considered for approval after the general registration process has been completed. The parent or guardian requesting the transfer will be notified prior to the start of school if the transfer has been approved or not. Transfers are approved or denied depending on several factors, including class size and school enrollment, academic and social/emotional factors, and student attendance and disciplinary data. In-District Transfers are valid for the current school year only. District administration reserves the right to review the progress of students granted In-District Transfers on a quarterly basis and rescind the transfer at that time, if necessary, based on specific academic, attendance, and behavior issues.
Questions regarding the In-District Transfer process should be directed to Sonia Hernandez in the Administration Office at (708) 423- 0950 ext. 2101.
