How are parents and students notified about the September 2022 school assignments?
Results of the School Choice Process will be mailed directly to parents/guardians.
The Appeal Process is available ONLY to Transition Students who participated to the School Choice Process. After the student’s school assignment has been received in the mail, a placement decision may be appealed by completing the Appeal of School Assignment Form online at yonkerspublicschools.org. The online Appeal must be submitted between June 15 and June 30, 2022. Appeals will be granted based on seat availability in the requested school and the nature of the request, including academic criteria. If the request cannot be accommodated, the student will remain at his or her assigned school. All appeal responses are final for the current academic year. Student Enrollment will respond to all appeals by August 2022.
How can parents/guardians transfer their child to a different school if they are not eligible to participate in the School Choice process?
A Transfer Request Form is available online for currently enrolled students in grades prekindergarten through 12. Transfer requests must be submitted between March 15 and April 15, 2022. Parents/Guardians need to provide a reason for requesting a school transfer. All families will receive notification about the status of their transfer request by the last week of June 2022. Approved school transfer requests are effective for the 2022-2023 academic year. The nature of the transfer, the seating capacity in the requested grade, school and admission requirements will be considered when making a transfer determination. Transfer Requests due to alleged bullying must have supporting documentation (i.e., Police report, school investigation or DASA report, etc.).
