Transferring Within the Washington Local / Intradistrict Transfer Procedures:
District residents who would like their children to attend a Washington Local School other than their home school may request transfer consideration by submitting an application no later than April 25, 2013 (exceptions apply). These applications are for regular education students (including students with a Speech Only IEP). All completed applications should be sent to the office of the Assistant Superintendent at 3505 W. Lincolnshire, Toledo, Ohio 43606. 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.
If your child has special needs or is on an IEP (other than Speech Only), you do not fill out an application. Please contact the Student Services Department at 419-473-8236. Transfer decisions for special education purposes continue to be based on state regulations and Individual Educational Plans.
All approvals for intradistrict enrollment will be reviewed annually. Therefore, parents or guardians whose intradistrict transfer requests were approved for the 2012/13 school year must re-apply if they wish to continue sending their child to a Washington Local school other than their school of residence.
If the transfer request is granted, student transportation will be the responsibility of the parent or guardian. Parents or guardians who would like their students to continue attending their home school, need not apply.
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 June. In cases where there is the potential for overcrowding, decisions may be delayed until the opening of school in August 2013.
For additional information or an application, contact the Assistant Superintendent's office at 419-473-8222.Download applications/requests forms below.

Special Education Students - Required Documents
In order for our staff to serve the special needs of your student, it is vital that we have the most recent copies of the following documentation:
ETR – Also known as MFE or Evaluation Report. The title of this document varies from state to state. This is the document that shows your student qualifies for special education services and highlights the areas of need. This evaluation is done every 3 years.
IEP* – This is the student’s Individualized Education Plan and contains goals and services that support your student’s specialized needs. IEP’s are done every year.
* If your student is transferring to Washington Local from a parochial school, the student will have an SP (Service Plan) in place of an IEP. Service plans are also done annually.
Having these documents with you at the time of registration will help us place your child in the appropriate educational setting and allow your child to start school promptly, and in the correct program.
Please call us if you have any questions or concerns about this documentation.
