In-District Transfer Request 

All transfers will be approved or denied based on the transfer categories and space availability as outlined in Procedure 3132P. Also, transportation is not provided for transfers, except in circumstances noted in the procedure.

Transfer Categories

Transfer requests will not be approved for athletic or co-curricular activity reasons. As per WIAA regulations, students transferring from one high school to another high school within the Highline Public Schools district, without a corresponding change in home residence with natural parents or legal guardians, will be deemed ineligible for a one-year period at the varsity level of sports. 

Your student may require a WIAA hearing in order to compete at the Varsity level.

Please review the information on the Washington Interscholastic Athletics Association (WIAA) Student Eligibility webpage. Please review changing/ transferring schools section specifically the Before you ENROLL and Before you WITHDRAW forms.
