Transfer Request Process
The Transfer Request Process for 2019-2020 is now closed.
We believe all schools in Barrington 220 provide the same outstanding curriculum under the direction of dedicated, caring teachers. With that belief in mind, the majority of our student population attends their assigned home school within district defined attendance boundaries.
However, School Board Policy 7:30 does permit a parent/guardian to submit a request for their child to attend a school outside their assigned attendance area:
A student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) may request a transfer for their child to a District school other than the one assigned. A request should be directed to the Superintendent or designee, who, at his or her sole discretion, may grant the request when the parent(s)/guardian(s) demonstrate that the student could be better accommodated at another school, provided space is available. If a request is granted, the parent/guardian shall be responsible for transportation. All approved transfers are effective for one school year.
A parent/guardian interested in submitting a transfer request for their child should first carefully read the FAQ document provided below in order to become familiar with the process and procedures associated with a transfer request:
