Dear Salem-Keizer Families,
In an effort to better allow schools to serve students, balance class sizes, staff accurately and align transfer windows, we are changing the In-District Transfer process to include two distinct windows for transfers at the elementary level. A similar process and change occurred at the secondary level two years ago. Elementary transfer requests will now be accepted March 1- March 30th for the transfer to occur at the beginning of the following school year, and November 1- November 30 for the transfer to occur after Winter Break. Due to the shortened notice of the change we will extend the Spring transition window this year only from March 1 – May 30th. If you are considering a transfer to another Salem-Keizer school for next year, please submit your request to your home school before the May 30th deadline to be considered for approval.
Thank you for your partnership and for sharing your children with us every day,
Salem-Keizer School District
