In BPS, a transfer is a student moving from one Boston Public School to another Boston Public School. If your child currently attends a school outside of Boston, or attends a private, parochial, or charter school, please follow the instructions for registration here.
Please Note: The transfer window for the 2019-2020 school year for students in grade 1-12 closed on November 27, 2019. Transfer applications for students in grades K0-K2 will still be accepted until Janaury 31, 2020.
For the 2019-2020 School year:
- Visit a Welcome center with a valid parent/guardian photo identification to complete a transfer application. Assignments will be released as soon as they are processed.
- Please note that transfers are not guaranteed. Additionally, if the transfer is granted, your child will lose their seat at their current school for next school year.
For the 2020-2021 School year:
- Transfer applications for the 2020-20201 school year will be accepted starting in January 2020.
