I would call the district for the school you would like your child to attend. Ask about their transfer policy, to find out if there's a way to transfer from your child's current school into the preferred school.

You can find district and school contact information using SchoolFinder (link below). Good luck!

Yes you can.  That is what we call a school of choice.  Where we all live the address is zoned for a particular school.  It does not mean that you have to attend that school.  However, if you pick another school, the school board does and will not provide you transportation for your child to and from the school.  I have done this and go to your county school board website and find all of the magnet schools or charter schools.  If you already have a school in mind then know that you have to provide transport to it and have to seek admission to that other school.  Magnet and charter schools usually have a waiting list.  I hope this helps.  Kara T.

Hi,
How old is your child? If he is still in the kindergarten school then try to send him to a nearby school.

I actually have a question to add. What's the exact process to transfer from your responding school to another one. For my case. My husband have joint custody to his hid and goes to far school but I always pick up hideous from this school and my son goes to a peek near by. Since our drive route is adjusted to that I really want to put my son in the same school. Also cause we have a new member in the family who is going to attend the same daycare which will only be two blocks away. So I've been searching, but I need guidance

I also have something to add.  Our school system is paying to send our son to private school for his special education needs.  We would like to transfer our daughter to another school system.  Will this affect him?

I think that everyone has a right to choose an educational establishment for his child as only parent and, of course, a student knows what is best for him or her.  I cannot share my own experience but I feel so sorry for all parents of such kids who have to struggle for their children instead of supporting them and helping to find the right way. I taught one boy with the same problem and by the year he was really better. I was a small step to the victory but I realized how strong his mom is. She studied everything with her son, using various resources (  like http://myessayservicewriting.com/   ) for writing and then together they created amazing things. It was like a miracle but they did it.
