In-District Transfer Request

  • Please use the following form to request transfer of a student from one School City of Mishawaka (SCM) elementary location to another SCM elementary location. You will need to use a separate form for each student requesting transfer.

    Hard copies are available at all SCM elementary locations and the SCM Administration Center as well as a digital form below. Parents/guardians will be notified of the decision regarding their transfer request.

    SCM In-District Transfer Guidelines:

    • Every effort will be made to place your child in the school requested.
    • SCM will attempt to keep families together in the same building.
    • Class size will be one of several factors in determining approval of this request.
    • Once a transfer is approved, it will become permanent for the school year, unless factors influencing the educational program or student wellbeing makes the transfer no longer possible.
    • It is the parent's responsibility to provide transportation and ensure that their child arrives at school on time every day.
    • In-District Transfer students may be re-assigned at any point during the school year to a different building should enrollment figures or other concerns warrant the re-assignment.
    • Forms need to be submitted by March 31, 2023.
    • Student placements will be determined in April and parents/guardians will be notified by email no later than April 28, 2023.
