Transfer Requests

While most students attend the school zoned for their neighborhood, families may request to transfer to one of our other schools.

All transfers are approved on a yearly basis and must be renewed annually to remain in a school of choice. Enrollment fluctuates from year to year and we must ensure that space is available before we can approve any transfers. Priority is given to those already enrolled in Monroe School District and then additional transfers are approved on a first come, first served basis. Exceptions include programs located only at specific schools where students enrolled in the program must attend in order to participate.

It is important to note that families approved to attend a school of choice are responsible for their child's transportation to school. Families may either drive their child to school or contact our Transportation Department to have a bus stop within the school's boundaries assigned.

In-District Requests

If you already live within the Monroe School District boundaries and would like to request to transfer to a school other than the one assigned to you, please fill out and submit a Intra-District Transfer application.

Out-of-District Requests

If you reside within the Monroe School District boundaries and would like to attend a school in another district, you will need to fill out and submit a Choice Transfer application. If approved, the Choice Transfer application will be signed by our Superintendent/designee and then be sent on to the district you are requesting to attend.

If you reside outside of the Monroe School District boundaries and would like to attend one of our schools, you will need to fill out and submit Choice Transfer application from your home school district and obtain a signed attendance waiver by the Superintendent/designee from your home school district.
