505 – Transfer Students

Transfers In. A student transferring into the Urbandale Community School District from another district, from a nonpublic school, or from competent private instruction will be assigned for grade placement according to recommendations from the district or school from which the student has transferred; however, the Urbandale Community School District reserves the right to evaluate each student individually and make placements accordingly.

Transfers Out. A student planning to transfer out of the District should notify the principal or his/her designee prior to departure. Student records will be sent to the new district upon receipt of a request signed by the student’s parent or guardian if the student is under eighteen years of age, or upon receipt of a request by the student if the student is eighteen years of age or older, or upon receipt of a request from the new district.
