Frequently Asked Questions

Out-of-District Student Transfers

Will I get to choose which campus my student attends?

No.  Transfer students will be assigned by the district based on availability of space and staff in grades K-6.  Students in grades 7-8 will attend RC Middle School and students in grades 9-12 will attend RC High School.

If I own property within the district but do not reside in the district, do I have to pay tuition?

Yes.  All transfer students are required to pay tuition in accordance with the approved board revision.  Remember this is an Out-of-District transfer.  If you become a resident within the district your student will no longer be considered Out-of-District , but will instead be considered a resident.

What criteria will be used to determine acceptance of a transfer student?

These will be determined when the transfer agreement is completed, but will include

  • Previous discipline records
  • Attendance records
  • Additional requirements as determined by the district.
Can the transfer of a student be revoked?

Yes, at any time the district feels that there is a good “cause”, such as the student becomes a discipline issue, or attendance issue. Please review the Transfer Agreement for specific information.


I have a 2nd grader, what happens if all the 2nd grade classes are full at every elementary campus?

The transfer would be declined because the district would not have the space or staff to accommodate the transfers.

This is not intended to answer all questions that may arise.  As new questions are brought to our attention, we will update the FAQ portion of this process on the district web site,

Thank you for your patience during this policy change.
