Applications for requesting a new intradistrict transfer between elementary schools in the White River School District, or a request to transfer an out-of-district student into the White River School District, will be available beginning April 5.
Parents or guardians wishing to request their elementary-age student attend a school other than their home school, are asked to complete an Application for Intra-District (or Out-of-District) Student Transfer form and return it to the district administration office, 240 North "A" St., P.O. Box 2050, Buckley, 98321, before June 11. Forms are available by contacting the district office, at each elementary school office or at the district Web site at www.whiteriver.wednet.edu. The district will be processing requests based on the return date of the application, the space available at the school requested, and the grade level of the student. The district will be contacting parents by mail by the end of June to advise whether the request can be accommodated.
Parents of out-of-district students are encouraged to enroll their students in their home district as an alternative plan in case the White River district cannot accommodate the request. Out-of-district transfer requests must be accompanied by a release of attendance from the resident district.
Any requests for elementary intradistrict or out-of-district transfers received in the district administration office after the June 11 deadline will be processed after the first week of school.
