Interdistrict Transfers

HB2747 establishes rules and procedures for transfers between school districts (interdistrict student transfers). This permits students to enroll in a school that is not in their district of residence. Students wishing to transfer into or out of Dayton School District must complete transfer requests at BOTH the resident and non-resident school district offices.

Request to Attend Dayton

The Interdistrict transfer window for the 2024-2025 school year is May 1 - June 15, 2024. 

Application to Attend Dayton

Transfer applications into Dayton for the 2024-2025 school year are now open. Between May 1 and June 15, 2024, students must request a release from their resident district and submit an application to attend Dayton School District. If there are more applications than available slots, the District will conduct an equitable lottery to fill the open slots after the window closes on June 15, 2024. Applications will be processed following the close of the transfer window which is June 15, 2024. Families will be notified by U.S. Mail to the address provided in your application no later than July 15, 2024.

Students attending any school within Dayton School District as an Interdistrict Transfer are expected to maintain satisfactory behavior and attendance.  If a student receives one or more major referrals and/ or falls below 90% attendance, that may result in a student’s transfer being revoked.  When a student's transfer is revoked, they will have to return to their school of residence.  The district will review all Interdistrict Transfer students behavior and grade data on a quarterly basis.
