Parents of Mead students may request a transfer from one Mead school to another. Transfer requests are evaluated according to available space and the reason for the request (Board Policy and Procedure 3131). In the elementary schools there is a "compelling reason" standard, and in the secondary schools there is a "substantial hardship" standard. Transfer request forms can be obtained at the school of residence or the District Office (2323 E. Farwell Rd., Mead, WA). Questions can be directed to the principal of the school of residence or the Department of Student Services and Activities, 465-6008.
