Comments on Student Transfer Board Policy Due by December 15

December 13, 2019

The Board of Education is proposing amendments to Board Policy JEE, Student Transfers, and is seeking public comment on the amendments. The purpose of this policy is to explain the limited circumstances under which students may be granted a transfer, referred to as a Change of School Assignment (COSA), to attend a school other than their home school or the school assigned in accordance with their Individualized Education Program (IEP).

Highlights of the Board's amendments include the following topics:

  • unique hardships that may qualify students for transfers based on family circumstances;
  • extenuating circumstances related to the medical, emotional or social well-being of a student;
  • clarification of the provision for receiving a transfer based on a sibling's school of attendance;
  • conditions for approving transfers of children of staff members;
  • academic transfers for high school students; and
  • adjustments to make reapplication procedures more consistent for students on approved transfers transitioning from elementary-to-middle school or middle-to-high school.

Comments on Policy JEE are due by Sunday, December 15, 2019.
