Fifth-graders may apply for transitional transfer for the 2023-2024 school year beginning Nov. 2
SPS fifth-graders have the opportunity to request a transitional transfer for the 2023-2024 school year to a middle school of their choice that is open to transfers. Students interested in this option may submit requests between 7:30AM, Wednesday, Nov 2 and 4:30PM, Friday, Dec 9.
This type of transfer is offered as part of Springfield Public Schools' open enrollment option. If your child plans to attend the middle school assigned to them based on the student's home address, no action is needed.
If your child is on transfer to a current elementary and you would like them to attend the connected middle school, you will need to submit a request to transfer to that middle school.
The transitional transfer request form for the 2023-2024 school year must be completed electronically. Requests are granted on a first come, first serve basis determined by an electronic time/date stamp.
If your student is interested, visit www.sps.org/transfers to learn more.
