Transfer Requests

Translation and Interpretation

Most students attend schools closest to their homes. However, if your family would prefer to attend a school outside your neighborhood, you can ask to transfer to one of our other schools.

To keep your child enrolled in your preferred school, you’ll have to turn in a request form each year. You will also be responsible for your child’s transportation to school. Space must be available in a school before we can approve a transfer. We give priority to students already enrolled in Central Kitsap schools. From there, we grant transfers on a first-come, first-serve basis. We begin processing transfer requests in February. For full consideration, you should submit your request by March.

Please call us at 360-662-1638 if you have any questions.
