How to request an appeal:
To request an appeal for one of the qualified reasons please complete this request form and someone will respond with the next available hearing and further details.
Getting ready for your appeal:
For revocations or an involuntary transfer appeal, the school site will have made a packet of information for the panel that is supporting their decision to transfer the student. If you have any documents you wish the panel to view, please bring eight (8) copies of the documents with you.
For interdistrict denials, the panel will have access to view all of the documents submitted with the original application. If you have any additional documents you wish the panel to view, please bring eight (8) copies of the documents with you.
What to expect during your appeal:
In Person – Meetings are held at the District office. Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time to allow for check in at the reception desk. Once the panel is ready, a staff member will come to the lobby to escort you to the conference room.
The chairperson will introduce themselves and the panel to you and explain the details. You will be given a chance to speak and pass out any documents you brought with you.
For revocations, administrative placement denials, or an involuntary transfer appeal, the school site will also get a chance to speak to the panel as to why the transfer was denied or why revocation was made. The school site representative (if any) and yourself will then leave and the panel will discuss the case.
