2017-2018 Fall Creek Transfer Option

We appreciate the feedback offered by parents through recent meetings and a survey on the 2017-2018 Fall Creek Transfer Option. As you know, Hamilton Southeastern Intermediate Junior High is currently over capacity. In contrast, Fall Creek Intermediate and Fall Junior High are currently under capacity and are the ideal choices to accommodate a flow of students from HIJH.

Due to the high level of interest, HSE has opened enrollment at Fall Creek Intermediate and Fall Creek Junior High to students in the HIJH attendance boundary for the start of the 2017-2018 school year. This means students, currently in grades 4-7, who will attend HIJH, may choose to attend FCI or FCJH next school year.

Please complete the official 2017-2018 Fall Creek Transfer Application using the link below. THERE IS NO NEED TO COMPLETE THIS FORM IF YOU WANT YOUR STUDENT(S) TO ATTEND HIJH AS SCHEDULED THIS FALL.

Fall Creek Transfer Application

An approved transfer application offers the following assurances:

1. Transportation. HSE Schools Bus Transportation will be provided.

2. Continuity. Students electing to transfer may attend FCI/FCJH through their eighth grade year.

3. Consideration. Siblings of 2017-2018 Fall Creek Transfer students may attend FCI/FCJH through their eighth grade year as well.

Families will receive written confirmation of their voluntary transfer request via email within two week of the submission deadline.

**This application is for current 4-7 grade parents, in the HIJH attendance area, who want to have their student(s) attend Fall Creek Intermediate or Fall Creek Junior High this fall. THERE IS NO NEED TO COMPLETE THIS FORM IF YOU WANT THEM TO REMAIN AT HIJH AS SCHEDULED.**

Moving to a Different HSE School

Transfer Appeal Information

If you would like your child to attend a different school other than your home school or if you have not taken possession of your home/apartment, you will need to submit a transfer appeal request.

Can I transfer if I live outside of the district?

Hamilton Southeastern Schools does NOT accept outside transfers due to the lack of space.

Am I allowed to transfer to another school within the district?

If you are currently in the HSE district you must complete a Transfer Appeal requesting a transfer to another school (see steps for appeal below).
