This report provides information about student transfers within Arlington in a school year. A transfer student is a student who attends a school, but does not reside within that school’s boundaries, or one who attends a school that does not have an attendance area, that is, it is not a neighborhood school. Factors which affect the number of transfers allowed are the previous September 30 membership, and projected enrollment.
According to School Board Policy J-5.3.31, most Arlington schools may accept transfers as long as the number of transfers does not exceed five percent based on the previous September 30 membership. In this report, these schools are referred to as neighborhood schools.
