Permissive transfers provide families and children with a choice and opportunity to attend a district school outside of their attendance-area school.
Attendance-area schools are determined by the address of the family's residence. Click here
to view the attendance-area maps for District 65.
Applications for permissive transfers are available from January 31, 2017 through August 9, 2017 for the 2017-2018 school year. The application process is open only to registered students living within the District 65 attendance boundaries. Click here
to learn more about student registration. To ensure an equitable selection process, the only information used to make a selection is the information contained within the application and received through the registration form. In the application process, applicants are assigned a random number and chosen by lottery. Consideration is given to gender balance and enrollment at the schools impacted by the selection.
Please note that students who attend a school on permissive transfer are not eligible for district transportation services. Permissive transfer students must attend on a consistent basis and student attendance is reviewed throughout the school year. Students who are excessively tardy or absent may be required to forfeit their permissive transfer and return to the attendance-area school.
Applications must be submitted prior to April 4, 2017 to be considered during the first round of selections. First round selection notifications will be sent to families in late April. This email/letter includes a deadline to inform the district whether or not the placement is accepted. Additional selections will be made in May, June, July, and August.
