School Transfers

  • 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. To learn more, please visit All about School transfers .
    The Online School Transfer Application Form is not to be used for registering new students or withdrawing students in the Everett School District.
