Student Transfers for the 2018-2019 School Year

The application period for requesting student transfers is from March 1, 2018 to March 31, 2018. 

Transfer requests submitted prior to March 31, 2018, will be reviewed by CCSD Constituent Boards during the months of April and May. After all applications are reviewed, a lottery for each school will be conducted. It is projected that lotteries will be conducted prior to June 8, 2018, for all transfer schools. Notification of status for each application will occur within one week of lotteries being conducted. Each lottery will place students on an Accepted List or on a Waiting List.

All communication regarding the status of your child’s application will be through emails using the address identified in Smart Choice.
We have conducted the lotteries for student transfers. The process will reopen July 1st through August 4, see below for projected availability.
