Transfers between DPS schools are processed twice during the school year ONLY .

Parents may fill out a transfer request and submit to the Student Enrollment Center during the first two weeks of December, and during the month of June.

If we are able to process the request, you will receive a confirmation letter.


Those currently attending a DPS school MUST go to that building to officially withdraw a student.

EdChoice voucher recipients who have not attended a DPS school can come to the Student Enrollment Center to withdraw.

A student in grades K-8 automatically receives transportation, provided that student meets one or more of these criteria:
  • Lives more than 1.5 miles from his/her school, OR

  • Has a route to school affected by one of four hazards (river, active railroad tracks, bridge with no sidewalks, and major highways), OR

  • Has an IEP that mandates transportation

A transportation request for a non-DPS student may be made through the school he/she attends.

In order to update or delete a child care provider, parents must complete and submit this form to the child's school.

Special Needs

Preschool-age students are referred by the Help Me Grow program, parents, or other agencies for special needs assessment. This assessment determines if the student requires an IEP (individualized education plan).

The DPS Office for Exceptional Children registers new K-12 students with existing IEPs through the Student Assignment Office.

Transfer students are reminded to please bring a hard copy of your transcript (high school), evaluations, and existing Individualized Education Plan (IEP) when registering with DPS, to ensure proper placement.
