Incoming 9th Graders
Incoming 9th grade students who wish to attend a high school outside of their home attendance area in the 2013-14 school year, need to complete a transfer option form. Students are only able to obtain one transfer option per calendar year. These forms are available on-line, at all of our High School buildings, and at the district’s Achievement Services Center at 1606 Brady Street. You may return forms to either the sending school, receiving school or Heather Ehlinger at the District’s Administrative Services Center at 1606 Brady Street.
Chapter XI Individual Choice Option
Any student who becomes a victim of violence, and a criminal charge has been filed, shall, to the extent feasible, be permitted to transfer to another school within the school district. For purposes of this rule, a victim of violence is a student who is physically injured, sexually assaulted or threatened with physical injury as a result of the commission of a crime (as defined by Iowa law) against the student while the student is in the school building or on the grounds of the attendance center. Within ten calendar days following the date of the request, the school district will offer an opportunity to transfer to the parent of the student. Contact the Office of Executive Director for appropriate form at 1606 Brady St., Davenport, IA 52803 or (563) 336-5090.
