Voluntary Transfer

A within-district transfer is when a student lives in one WDMCS school area but wants to go to a different WDMCS school. Parents/guardians who get approved for this transfer agree to limited district transportation or arrange their own transportation to and from school. If you want to request a within-district transfer, please fill out the form below.

Transportation with Voluntary Transfers

From Board Policy 710.02 – Student Eligibility for Bus Services and Bus Pass Fees
A student can ride a district school bus as a voluntary transfer if they meet certain criteria. A voluntary transfer happens when a parent or guardian asks for the student to go to a school other than their neighborhood school. The principal at the new school has to approve the transfer based on available space.

Transportation for Voluntary Transfer Students

For a student to use the school bus:

  1. They must go to a bus stop in the school's boundaries.
  2. The bus must have space for the student. Students in the school boundary have priority if the bus is almost full.
  3. Since using the school bus is a service for voluntary transfer students, regular bus pass fees must be paid.
