Thank you for your interest in the Syracuse City School District’s K-8 Transfer Program. Please click here to read the letter that was emailed and mailed to families this week regarding the District’s recent decision not to honor K-8 Transfer Program requests at this time.  We appreciate your patience, and will contact you if a seat becomes available for your child in your school of interest.  Once again, we appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.  We will get through this together.

!  Important Information

Due to COVID-19, the District was unable to resume the testing process for students entering grades K-5 in September.  Therefore, all students were placed in the lottery for the upcoming school year.  We will resume our normal testing and assessment process for grades K-5 during the next application cycle. Families will begin receiving acceptance or waitlist notifications during the week of June 15. 

Families with students entering grades 6 and 7 will receive either an acceptance, waitlist, not recommended for enrollment or no show letter.  All eligible students were interviewed.  We did not have to postpone this process due to COVID-19.
