School Attendance Areas

The St. Joseph Board of Education establishes and/or revises school attendance areas annually or whenever such revision is deemed necessary. All changes in school attendance areas approved by the Board are published in the official minutes.

Intra-District Transfer
In accordance with Policy JCB, all students must transfer between district schools when their residence changes to a different attendance area, unless exempted by the superintendent or designee. Further, the district maintains the ability to transfer students between schools as needed.

Transfer Requests

  • Elementary: Students may request a hardship transfer to a different district school subject to available space and eligibility as determined by the district. Hardship transfer requests will be considered for the following reasons: sibling is assigned to a school based on an IEP, or currently a sixth grader enrolled in the school.
  • Middle School: Parents must contact the building principal in which they would like to obtain a transfer.
  • High School: Open enrollment. 9th grade and new to the District – students pick from the three high schools regardless of residency.

Transportation will not be provided to students transferring to schools outside the student's attendance area, unless required by law.
