Intra-district Transfers

Intra-district transfers in Piedmont may take place between the three elementary schools and also between the Piedmont High School and Millennium High School. At the elementary level, a Request Form for Intra-District Transfer is available from  the school Principal’s office. The form should be completed and returned to the school principal’s office that serves the zone in which the student lives. For intra-district transfers at the high school level, please contact the site administrator.

The Board of Education has the authority to maintain appropriate racial and ethnic balances among district schools and shall take such balances into account in approving or denying intra-district transfer applications.

A student may be assigned to a school or program if the student requires a legally mandated program or accommodation which is available at that school or program. A student may be assigned to a school or program for disciplinary reasons or for the protection of the health and safety of that student or other students or employees of the district.
