2022-2023 VOLUNTARY TRANSFER FORM
The 2022-2023 Voluntary Transfer form is a formal request to transfer a CCS student from their home district school to a different school district within the CCS system. The parent or legal guardian must provide a specific reason for the transfer request. If the request is approved, the parent or legal guardian must provide timely transportation to and from the school. This transfer is good for the current school year only if approved. No subsequent transfers will be granted if approved. If your child is in grades 6 through 12, they will not be eligible for athletic participation for 365 days from the first approved transfer date. Voluntary Transfers cannot be used to transfer into the Choice Programs such as Classical schools or Early College schools.
Once you submit the 2022-2023 Voluntary Transfer form, please allow at least 10 business days for processing. You will be notified by email when a decision is made.

Please click on the following link to complete the Choice Exit Intent form if you want your child or children to exit the Choice Program and return to their home district school for the 2022-2023 school year (beginning in August 2022).
