Intradistrict Transfer-Transfers Within FMSD

Definition: Transfer from resident school to another school within the Franklin-McKinley School District.  Students currently attending school on an approved intradistrict transfer, are not required to submit a new application each year when continuing at the same school. 

If I want to transfer my child from one Franklin-McKinley School to another, what steps do I take?

STEP 1.  An Intradistrict transfer application can be printed from this website or obtained from the school or District Office.


STEP 2.  The application is returned to the school of residence.  Pay particular attention to the documentation required for each specified reason  The application must be complete and the required documentation must be attached.

STEP 3. The Principal at the school of residence may meet with the family to discuss the reasons for the request.   The Principal at the school of residence approves or denies the request. Approved requests are sent to the requested school for approval. Denied requests are subject to appeal by the parent/guardian. Denial appeals may be submitted to the Student Wellness and Support Services Office.

STEP 4.   The Principal of the requested school makes a determination about approval based on space available. The Principal of the requested school approves or denies the request, signs the transfer application and contacts the parent.  

Once a intradistrict transfer request has been approved, the student will remain at the requested school until the end of the highest grade level for that school.
