Welcome to the Transfer Department Webpage.
Knox County Schools have specific zones set up for school attendance. Knox County students must attend the school in the zone where their legal parents/guardians reside unless granted an approved transfer. If a parent would like for their child(ren) to attend a school outside his or her zone beginning in the upcoming school year, a transfer must be granted. An approved transfer is valid through terminal grade of the school, (K-5, 6-8, 9-12). If approved, parents will be responsible for transportation and shall accompany their student(s) to the school for enrollment/registration.
A student transfer may be recommended for revocation for good and sufficient reasons, such as:
- lack of academic progress
During the school year students may also be placed in a school outside of their zoned school by the Superintendent for the following reasons:
- welfare of the student
Note: Requests for consideration of administrative placement must be made in writing and submitted to Brian Hartsell via email, US Mail or hand delivery. Administrative placements will be approved to a school that can accommodate the student. (space, programming, staffing, etc.)
