501.07 Student Transfers Out or Withdrawals

A parent who wishes to withdraw or transfer their student from the district prior to the student’s completion and/or graduation from the education program, shall notify the superintendent/designee of the intent to withdraw or transfer the student as soon as possible.

The parent shall present this notice, including the student’s final day of attendance, at the student’s attendance center. If the student is of compulsory education age and not transferring to another public school district or an accredited nonpublic school, the parents shall notify the superintendent/ designee that the student is receiving private instruction. Upon parental request, the district shall forward the student’s cumulative records to the receiving district. If the student is not enrolling in another district, the district will maintain the student’s records in the same manner as the records of students who have graduated from the district.
