Rochester City School District Transfer Process

  • Transfer requests in the Rochester City School District are classified in two ways:
    • Voluntary transfers are accepted May 1 - September 30 of each school year based on order of receipt and space availability. Transfer forms can be accessed below, through your child's school, or the Office of Student Placement, 131 West Broad Street, 1st floor. Completed forms can be submitted to school office personnel or via email at studenttransfer@rcsdk12.org. Families will receive notification by October 15 about the status of a voluntary transfer request. 

    • Safety, medical, and hardship transfers are available throughout the school year. To begin this process, contact your child's school as this type of transfer requires additional documentation and participation from school administrative staff.  Transfers submitted by school personnel are reviewed weekly by a Transfer Committee. Once a transfer has been reviewed, families will receive notification from district personnel about the acceptance or denial of a safety, medical, or hardship transfer request.
