A student's school and resident school district is based on where the student resides. In some circumstances, a family may ask to transfer their student to a school outside of their resident district. This is called a nonresident student transfer. You may also hear it referred to as an out-of-district transfer, interdistrict transfer, choice transfer, variance, waiver, or school choice.
- Nonresident students are those who live outside the school district boundaries of the district they are asking to attend.
- Whether the student transfer request is accepted or denied is determined by the school districts. The process a school district uses to determine transfer requests is established in their policies and procedures.
- Both the student's resident district and the nonresident district must approve a transfer prior to the student attending a nonresident district. The resident district “releases” the student, and the nonresident district “admits” the student.
