If you already have an approved transfer to the school your child currently attends, you are not required to complete a new transfer request UNLESS the student is a fifth grader advancing to a middle school or an eighth grader advancing to a high school outside his or her district. 

The following schools cannot accept transfers: Forest Hill Elementary, Mountain Crest Elementary, Rutherford College Elementary, Salem Elementary, Liberty Middle, and Patton High.
