What is an intra-district transfer?
An intra-district transfer (IDT) request is a request to attend a different school than the school that a student’s address is currently directed toward. Olentangy Schools offers the IDT process to families annually.
Where do I find the intra-district transfer form?
The IDT forms for the 2021-22 school year may be found on the Forms page of the district website beginning January 4, 2021. Information regarding the availability of the forms will be sent to all parents in an email newsletter during the week of January 4, 2021.
When may I submit my form and what is the deadline?
IDT forms for elementary, middle, and high school will be available beginning January 4, 2021. Middle and high school forms must be submitted on or about February 5, 2021. Elementary forms must be submitted on or about May 28, 2021.
Is the transfer awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis?
All forms will be reviewed at the same time. The time of submission does not impact the decision. Decisions will be made by Olentangy’s administrative team based on enrollment projections and staffing needs, keeping in mind we are not interested in any building being over-capacity after our extensive redistricting effort.
If the transfer is granted, what does a parent need to know?
Anyone granted an intra-district transfer must provide their own transportation for their child. Additionally, at the high school level, any student athlete will be ineligible to participate in any sport(s) for one academic year. Middle school athletic participation is not impacted.
How long is the transfer valid?
High school transfers are valid for the duration of the time the student is in high school. Middle and elementary transfers are valid for one year only. A new form must be completed the following year.
