4. Been performing at grade level and is enrolled in the grade appropriate to the student's age

Approval of the transfer request must:

1. Be based on serving a valid educational purpose and be in the best interest of the student;

2. Not cause an increase in the number of staff, programs, or services provided at the new campus; and

Be denied if there is not available space at the proposed receiving campus.

The transfer is binding for the entire academic year, except under the following circumstances:

1.  The transfer is revoked by the receiving school principal on the basis that the student-to-teacher ratio exceeds state law (22:1) and such a revocation is made by the Friday following Labor Day of the academic year.

         a.        Student misconduct;
