Intra-District Transfer

Ferndale Public Schools has nine schools and a wide selection of special programs to meet the many diverse needs of our families and students. Regardless of which school your child may be assigned based on address, we are confident that strong connections will be made by students, families and staff within all of our school communities.

If you live in the Ferndale School District and want your child to attend one of our schools other than the school to which your child is assigned based on address, an Internal Transfer form must be filled out and submitted to the district office located at 6041 Vista Drive in Ferndale or emailed to

  • Parents are responsible for providing transportation to and from school for students attending on a transfer.
  • Requests are approved for one school year only and must be renewed annually. Renewal requests for the next school year should be submitted prior to the end of the current school year.
  • For new transfer requests, you may be asked to provide additional information if your child has not previously attended in our district.
