R-7 School District Guidelines for Secondary Student Transfer Requests
Lee’s Summit R-7 School District families may request transfers from one R-7 secondary school to the other. Most of our secondary schools are at or above student capacity so transfers will be limited. The deadline to request a transfer is March 3, 2003. Families are encouraged to make their requests as early as possible.
High school transfer requests are only granted under “exceptional circumstances,” according to R-7 School District Board of Education policy. Reasons for allowed transfers include family moves; requests from outside agencies; family hardships; accessibility to special education programs or other special programs; psychological, emotional, or social needs; accommodating graduating seniors; or administrative placement. Detailed descriptions of each reason are available along with the high school transfer request applications at the secondary schools.
Families should be aware that the Missouri State High School Activities Association’s regulations may restrict students on a voluntary high school transfer from participating in interscholastic activities. Copies of the state activities guidelines are available at secondary schools.
Transfers from one middle school to another middle school do not need the exceptional circumstances required for high school transfers. Despite the more open middle school transfer guidelines, families of middle school students wanting to transfer to another school still need to submit a transfer request form and meet the March 3, 2003 deadline.
Within two weeks of the transfer application due date (March 3, 2003), each transfer request will be considered, R-7 administrators will make a decision and contact parents through the mail.
Families new to the R-7 School District may apply for transfers upon enrollment in the school district. Families new to a specific school attendance area may apply for transfers after residency has been established.
If you have questions about secondary transfers, please call the R-7 School District Administrative Office at 986-1000 or any R-7 middle school or high school.
