JCB - Transfers by Students in Persistently Dangerous Schools

File:  JCB







            Any student attending a school which has been designated as a persistently dangerous school by the Virginia Department of Education will be offered the opportunity to transfer to another school in the division which is not so designated.  If there is not another school in the division to which students may transfer, the division may explore other appropriate options such as an agreement with a neighboring division to accept transfer students.


            In the event that a student elects to transfer, the transfer may remain in effect as long as the student’s original school is identified as persistently dangerous.
