In-District School Transfers

 

The Lansing School District continues to provide district-wide school of choice so that families may choose the Pathway that best fits their child's interests without concerns regarding transportation.  This also eliminates the need for students to change schools during the year due to a move or change in family situation. For more information on our Pathway options visit our Enrollment page

Nevertheless, we do understand that at times there may be a need to change schools during the year.  A transfer can be requested based on the following reasons:

Medical: My child has a documented medical condition that requires one or more of the following:

  • My child needs to be near a hospital
  • My child’s documented medical condition requires assistance from a full-time school nurse

Safety: My child has a documented  safety incident report at their current school in which they were the victim.

Transportation:  As verified by my documented address, my child lives too far from the current school bus stop and by transferring schools:

  • My child would be in the walk zone and can self-transport
  • My child would be near a CATA bus stop and will take the CATA card to attend school
  • I can transport my child and will not request school bus services

OR

As verified by by documented address, my child lives too far from the CATA bus stop and by transferring schools:

  • My child would be in the walk zone and can self-transport
  • I can transport my child and will not request school bus services

Please fill out the transfer request form if the reason is a documented medical, safety or transportation issue.
