TRANSFERRING INTO THE COLFAX SCHOOL DISTRICT
Colfax School District welcomes transfer requests from all students interested in attending Colfax schools.
To apply, enter an electronic request in the Choice Transfer Request Portal (Choice Transfer Request Portal) or complete a Choice Transfer Request Form (available from your resident school district). If submitting a hard copy of the request form, your resident district must complete the Certification of Release by Resident District section before it is submitted to us for review.
To ensure we do not compromise the quality of our educational programs, several factors will be considered in approving the request, including adequate staffing and enrollment capacity in the grade level and/or special programs availability and capacity. Acceptance is also contingent upon a review of student records. A transfer request from outside our district may be denied based on a student’s discipline record, academic performance or attendance record.
In the event that an application for admission is denied, you may request an appeal to the Colfax School District Board of Directors.
You will be notified of acceptance or denial of your Choice Transfer Application. Students remain the responsibility of the resident school district and must continue to attend school there until the effective start date of the transfer.
Requests are approved for one-year only and must be renewed each year.
TRANSFERRING OUT OF THE COLFAX SCHOOL DISTRICT
Occasionally circumstances will arise that require a student to leave the district. In order for us to better understand the reasons for this decision, we encourage families to meet with the principal of their student’s school to discuss their reason for leaving.
To transfer out of the Colfax School District, enter an electronic request in the Choice Transfer Request Portal (Choice Transfer Request Portal) or complete the Choice Transfer Request Form (Choice Transfer Request Form) and submit it to the District Office for processing.
You will be notified of acceptance or denial of your Choice Transfer Application. Students remain the responsibility of the Colfax School District and must continue to attend school until the effective start date of the transfer.
