Intradistrict Transfers

Intradistrict Transfers

Transferring Within WLS (between school buildings)


District residents who would like their children to attend a Washington Local School other than their home school for the 2022-23 school year may request transfer consideration by submitting an intradistrict application.  All completed applications should be sent to the EMIS Office at 3505 W. Lincolnshire, Toledo, Ohio 43606 or given to the secretary at your child's school. Transfer decisions are based upon building and grade level capacities and other established criteria. Preference for enrollment in any particular school is given to students living in the school's established attendance boundaries.

Children who have completed one or more years under an intradistrict transfer will remain in their current building and will not need to reapply annually, providing the established criteria is met. Only those who are requesting an intradistrict transfer for the first time should apply, or if your child was in an “overflow” situation due to class size for the 2021-22 school year and wants to remain at the “overflow” building for 2022-23.

Transportation for approved intradistrict transfer students will continue to be the responsibility of the parent or guardian.

Washington Local's intradistrict enrollment policy is in compliance with the state law which requires school districts to establish limited transfer opportunities within the school system. Decisions on intradistrict transfers will be made in mid-August. You will be notified by mail prior to the start of the school year as to whether your intradistrict application has been approved or not.  

For additional information or an application, contact the EMIS Office at 419-473-8245. Download applications/requests forms below.
