Proposed revisions to the Enrollment & Transfer Policy (25-2.2)

In June 2017, the School Board will vote on revisions to policy 25-2.2 Enrollment and Transfers.  Policy changes will be effective for the 2018-19 school year.

The current policy is 13 pages long and it includes a mix of policy statements and operational procedures.  The policy made sense in 2001 when enrollment was steady around 19,000 students and we were encouraging families to help us fill under enrolled schools.  Today, APS has more than 26,000 students, and enrollment is growing by an average of 700+ students per year.  The School Board has charged APS with revising policy (25-2.2) to

  • provide blend of neighborhood & option schools,
  • ensure equitable access,
  • simplify the policy, standardize practices, and
  • use community input will shape final revisions.

Updated 2/2/17

At the School Board’s direction, APS is beginning the process of updating SB Policy 25-2.2, Enrollment and Transfers for Schools and Programs. The policy was last completely reviewed and revised in 2001-02.The goal of this review and revision process is three-fold:

  • To make it easier for families to understand the school options available and processes to apply;
  • To align the structure of the policy and procedures with best practices; and
  • To allow for flexibility in making adjustments in the future as we continue to address capacity.

Staff has developed a first draft, and those draft revisions to the policy will be posted online on Wed, Feb. 8, and will be shared with the community for discussion and feedback over the next couple of months. Our goal is to complete the process of reviewing and finalizing it later this spring.


Updated 1/23/17

The  January 9 School Board work session began to inform the community engagement process for revising this policy.

The engagement process will occur between mid-February 2017 and May 2017. Details about community meetings will be posted in early February.
