    All principals and assistant principals

    Current students and families wishing to request a school transfer for the 2017-18 school year may only do so during the summer transfer window from Monday, July 17 to Friday, August 18.
     
    (6/19/17 UpdateThis bi-lingual flyer can be used to promote awareness.)

    Transfer requests must be made in person at Edmondson-Westside Skill Center at 501 North Athol Avenue or at Harford Heights Elementary School at 1919 North Broadway. Walk-in visits are accepted from Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. To make an appointment, call 443-642-3897. Please note that submitting a transfer request does not guarantee placement. Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and approved or denied based on the space available.

    When requesting a transfer, families must have the following documents:
    • A parent or guardian’s valid photo ID
    • Proof of guardianship, if applicable
    • The student’s birth certificate
    • Two proofs of residency with the parent or guardian’s name. These include:
      • Gas, electric, water, landline telephone, or cable bill dated within the last 30 days
      • Verifiable, signed lease agreement
      • Mortgage statement dated within the last 30 days
      • Paystub dated within the last 30 days
      • Bank statement dated within the last 30 days
      • Social Security/Department of Social Services letter dated within the last 30 days
    To process requests for entrance-criteria schools, families should also bring report cards for the previous two years of school, and standardized test results in reading and math. If a student has already been accepted to the school being requested, a copy of the acceptance letter must be provided in order to receive official placement from the district.
