Within District Transfer

  • A within-district, or voluntary, transfer student lives in one WDMCS school boundary area but requests to attend a different WDMCS school. Parents approved for a transfer agree to limited district transportation options or provide their own transportation to and from school. To request a within-district transfer, please fill out a form below.


    Within District Transfer Request Form (2023-24)


    From Board Policy 710.02 – Student Eligibility for Bus Services and Bus Pass Fees
    A voluntary transfer student may ride a district school bus if he/she meets the established criteria. (A voluntary transfer occurs when a parent or guardian requests the student attend a school other than his/her neighborhood school. The principal at the receiving school must approve the voluntary transfer, based on available space).

    Transportation for Voluntary Transfer Students

    1. The student must go to an existing bus stop within the attending school’s boundaries.
    2. The bus must have space available for the student requesting the transportation. Students living inside the school boundary will have preference if the bus is approaching capacity.
    3. Because school bus transportation is a service provided to voluntary transfer students, regular bus pass fees must be paid.
