Application Process & Timeline

2016-17 Non-Resident Transfer Student Application

School Board Policy E104 - Non-Resident Transfer Students

Transfer students currently enrolled in DCS are already accepted for 2016-17 and do not need to re-apply. A form will go home in March for you to indicate your desire to return.

ALL transfer students entering kindergarten must apply.

All completed applications must be submitted to the Superintendent’s Office for a time/date stamp. Only those completed applications (application & discipline form) that have been received in the Superintendent’s Office will be considered.

Initial Application Window: January 4 – March 23

(These students are applying to attend for the entire school year)

Non-Resident Transfer Student Applications will be accepted in the Superintendent’s Office beginning January 4, 2016 through the end of the business day on March 23, 2016. These applications will constitute the pool for a lottery to be held at the regular school board meeting in March. All qualified applications received during this window period will be part of the lottery and a determination will be made regarding their conditional acceptance that night.

Supplementary Application Window: March 24 – July 31

(These students are applying to attend for the entire school year)

Additional Non-Resident Transfer Student Applications will be accepted in the Superintendent’s Office beginning March 24, 2016 through the end of the business day on July 31, 2016. These will be time & date stamped upon arrival to this office. Each school will accept new qualified transfer students in those grade levels which did not hit capacity at the March school board meeting on a “first come, first served” basis until each grade level reaches capacity as set by the school board.
