Zone Transfers (within CVESD) for 2023-24

Zone Transfers (within CVESD) for 2023-24

Neighborhood school attendance areas are established to optimize the use of school facilities and to avoid crowded conditions. Parents/guardians, however, may request zone transfers to schools within our district or interdistrict transfers to schools in other school districts. Transfer requests are generally approved as long as space is available in the school of choice.

  • Applications for new zone transfers may be submitted electronically; contact your neighborhood school.
  • Renewal of zone transfers may be submitted from January 24 through February 14, 2023, at the CVESD school of choice that your child currently attends.

How to Apply for Zone Transfers (within CVESD)

  • Obtain a zone transfer link from your neighborhood school. Complete it in its entirety. An incomplete application could delay its consideration.
  • Submit your zone transfer request within the applicable application period shown above. Applications will be processed according to space availability.

Students must attend their neighborhood school until parents/guardians are notified by the Student Placement Office that space is available at the school of choice. Completing a transfer application does not mean that a student will automatically be allowed to attend a school of choice. Students are admitted to schools in accordance with school district-established priorities.

When a priority category contains more applicants than available space, students’ names are placed on a waiting list at the school for space availability. Zone transfers are reviewed annually for continued placement.

Waiting Lists for Zone Transfer Requests

Schools maintain waiting lists for zone transfer requests. Waiting lists are prioritized by the date of application within a school year calendar. When two zone transfer application dates are the same, applicants with siblings at the school of choice are given placement priority. The Student Placement Office or staff at neighborhood schools can discuss other options with applicants when transfers have been denied or if applicants have been placed on a waiting list.

Transfer Back To The Neighborhood School

Students approved for zone transfer shall abide by school rules and procedures. Students may be returned to their neighborhood school or to the district in which they live for any of the following reasons:

  • Continual disruption of the educational program at the school or inappropriate behavior on the bus.
  • Poor attendance, excessive tardiness, or children not picked up after school in a timely manner.
  • Failure to participate in the program for which the transfer was approved.
  • A student's return to the neighborhood school may take place at any time during the year upon request by the parent/guardian when space is available.
