  • Request a School Transfer for 2020-21 

    The official request period for existing Wake County Public School System students seeking a school transfer for the 2020-21 school year ended on March 6. Here are remaining transfer request options:

    • Families of existing Wake County Public School System students can still submit transfer requests. Not all decisions are eligible for appeal to the school board.
    • Families of students newly enrolling into the Wake County Public School System can submit a request for transfer within the first 10 days of enrollment. Those requests would be eligible for appeal to the school board if denied by staff. See Board Policy 4100.D.1.a. for more information.
