FOX C-6 SCHOOL DISTRICT 745 Jeffco Blvd. Arnold, MO 63010
STUDENT ELEMENTARY 2016-2017 TRANSFER INFORMATION
Student Assignment to Schools Within the District Designated attendance areas for all schools shall be established by the Fox C-6 Board of Education to make optimum use of district school facilities. Students residing within the attendance area of a school shall attend that school, except as otherwise provided by policies of the Fox C-6 Board of Education. Transfers Students shall attend the school designated for the attendance area in which the student resides. Under exceptional circumstances, however, a student may be permitted to transfer to a school outside of the student’s attendance area. If approved, these transfers must be renewed annually. Transfer Procedures A request for transfer to a school outside the assigned attendance area for the next succeeding school year must be based upon exceptional circumstances and for justified reasons. Reasons for transfer will require documentation. Please remember to attach documentation to the Transfer Request Form before submitting it for approval. The transfer request must be submitted to the Office of the Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education or Secondary Education on the forms provided by the school district. The request for transfer will be reviewed and a decision will be made to approve or deny the application for transfer. Parents/Guardians requesting the transfer will be notified in writing of the decision. If a transfer is approved, TRANSPORTATION IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INDIVIDUALS REQUESTING THE TRANSFER. Bus routes will not be altered for students requesting to leave their home school. As a condition for approval of any voluntary transfer request, the requesting party shall be required to sign a transportation waiver form provided by the Fox C-6 School District. This waiver acknowledges that any right to free transportation that a student may otherwise have by reason of Board policy or state statute is waived. Transfers, when approved, will be effective at the beginning of the next semester. Exceptions will be made for emergency reasons only.
Special Information Elementary-Transfers, when approved, will be contingent upon the following: a. space within the grade level requested; b. good attendance including no excessive tardiness or late pickups; and, c. the student does not regularly disrupt the educational process of the classroom, grade level, and/or building. If an elementary transfer request is approved, that does not mean a secondary transfer (middle/high school) will be approved. Secondary transfers are much more restrictive than elementary transfers. Babysitting/Daycare is not a reason for transfer approval at the secondary level. Secondary-Eligibility to participate in extracurricular activities can be significantly affected by student transfer. Student eligibility regulations apply to any activity sponsored by the Missouri State High School Activities Association. In general, this involves activities that include district/state competitions. NOTE: ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS ARE NOT LIMITED TO ATHLETICS. Please direct questions to the athletics/activities administrator in your school prior to requesting a transfer.
