The first transfer window of the 2022-2023 school year opened on March 1, 2022 for the 2022-2023 school year. We are writing to remind you that this window, for students currently enrolled in grades K-11, closes on April 30, 2022. A transfer window is the period of time when a student can apply to transfer from their home school (determined by place of residence) to a different school.
If your student is currently approved for transfer to another school location, you do not need to reapply.
There are two separate transfer request windows in the Shawnee Mission School District (SMSD). The first is for students currently enrolled in grades K-11. A later window will open for incoming kindergarten students. Please be aware that due to high enrollment, the following schools WILL NOT be accepting new transfer requests for the 2022-2023 school year: Briarwood and Corinth.
