What if an Awesome Green School is Out of District?
Of course in a perfect world, you’d pick your neighborhood wisely, before having kids, thus ensuring the best pubic school possible. Now, as we shoot back to the real world, here are some other ways you can get into an out of district school. You can move obviously, but really make sure you love the school first as moving is costly and a pain. Most districts have out-0f-district transfers available for students, but rules about this vary by district or city. For example, in Portland, where I live, district transfers work via a cycle and centralized lottery system and transfer space is extremely limited. Other districts have different transfer rules. Visit your city’s public education department to learn more – simply search for “city name” public schools. One last thing, before you lie about your address to get a transfer to a better school, that some people have been arrested for doing so – which is entirely lame, but true.
