  • Student Transfers (2019-2020 school year only)

    Families who are new to Manatee County, have moved out of zone but want to remain enrolled at their current school, or who want to transfer schools or districts during the current school year, may submit a Hardship Request Form if their zone-assigned school poses a hardship. Transfer approval is based on space availability, demonstration of genuine need and student history.

    You may obtain a Hardship Request Form by clicking on the Hardship Form in the "Forms" list on this page, requesting a printed form at your current school, or at the Office of Student Assignment.

    For more information or details on the hardship request process, please contact the Office of Student Assignment via email at studentassignment@manateeschools.net or call (941) 708-4971.

    *NOTICE*
    Hardship transfer requests received by the Office of Student Assignment after the start of the school year, 8/12/2019, are being held for monthly review to consider enrollment to the requested school in the second semester of the 19/20 school year.
