This program provides a way for a school to obtain students from feeder school sites for the upcoming school year.

  • Some districts allow schools to do this procedure, while in others it is a function reserved for the District Coordinator. If unsure, contact your District Coordinator.
  • This program is not normally used if the Student Master "Next School" field was used to direct feeder students to upcoming year school sites. Consult with your District Coordinator if unsure.
