Transfers are required for students to attend a school other than their neighborhood school – the school assigned based on the parent/guardian’s legal address of residence.

The interdistrict transfer process applies to non-Bethel residents who wish to transfer into Bethel School District, or to Bethel resident students who wish to transfer to other districts.
The interdistrict transfer process is governed by state laws as well as district policies. Interdistrict Transfers require that the student’s home district consent to the transfer. If a transfer request into our district is approved, Bethel will then contact the student’s home district to seek consent to the transfer.
Transfers will be honored for as long as the student attends their approved school. A new transfer request must be submitted once a student moves from one school to another (elementary to middle, middle to high school, etc.) Transfers are also contingent upon the student meeting attendance and behavioral expectations.
Interdistrict transfers will be evaluated on several factors, especially the space available. Some Bethel schools may not have space available to accommodate transfers due to a lack of openings. Incomplete transfer requests may be denied without consideration or appeal. There are no guarantees of approval.
