Information about how to submit a transfer request in order to switch schools.

The first window for transfer applications runs through Jan. 31.

Applying For A Transfer

  • Students who currently have an approved transfer DO NOT need to reapply unless they want to change schools.
  • Students who are transitioning from elementary to middle school or middle school to high school DO need to apply for a transfer if they want to attend a school outside their assigned area.

Apply Online

Families who would like their child to attend an APS school outside their assigned attendance area in 2018-19 may apply online for a transfer beginning January 1st.

Apply In Person

Applications also may be completed in person in the Student Service Center on the first floor of the APS administration building, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE.

About Student ID Numbers

Parents will need to know each student’s ID number if they are currently an APS student or have ever attended an APS school.

New Students Only

  • In order to register your student into APS, you will need to create a ParentVue account online.
  • An ID number will be generated for your student, once a your account is set up. 
  • When your account is active, submit your student’s registration information. Registration information includes primary and emergency contacts, medical information, birth certificate, student’s name, date of birth, address. All information will be submitted with the default school year set as 2018-2019. It will change to the correct year when your student starts school in August 2019.

The Next Step in ParentVue account creation process will ask you to choose between selecting your student’s District School or Transfer Request

  • If you select Transfer Request your student’s information will be sent to the transfer office for processing. 
    If you wish to submit a transfer request you MUST choose Transfer Request.
  • If you select your District School your student’s information will be sent directly to that school.

Please allow a few days for processing once your information is submitted. After your student’s registration is processed you will receive an email with your student’s APS ID number. If you want to request a transfer to another APS school, use this ID number to complete your request through the Student Transfer Request Form.

How transfers are granted

Transfers are not on a first-come, first served basis; requests will be processed as having been received on the same day in January.

Transfers are granted based on the space available in a school or program. We use a random selection process and priority system that is in compliance with state and federal regulations. Learn more about transfers.
