School Transfer Request
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 permits a parent/guardian to submit a request for their child to attend a school outside their assigned attendance area. The deadline for elementary and middle school transfer requests for the 2023/24 school year was February 28, 2023.
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.
The school district will attempt to respond to all transfer requests in a timely manner. However, due to enrollment changes that take place throughout the year and into the summer months, a final decision pertaining to the transfer request may not be made until 1 - 2 weeks before the start of the new school year.
Online registration should be completed for your child based on your child’s school in the assigned attendance area. If the transfer request is approved, the student record will be updated by Barrington 220 staff before the start of the 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:
