Transfer application deadline extended

February 24, 2014 

Eighth-graders in the Puyallup School District have until June 2 to submit in-district transfer applications for optimal placement in the 2014-15 school year.

The application deadline was extended for eighth-graders to allow more time to notify families about a change to in-district transfer requirements for that grade level only.

Beginning in fall 2014, ninth-graders will have an opportunity to compete in all high school sports. Eighth-graders who plan to attend a high school not in their home attendance area as a 10th-grader but participate in high school athletics at that school as a ninth-grader, must submit an in-district transfer application.
