    Transfer to a PPS school outside the neighborhood in which you live is through a petition request. After the lottery has closed, access to focus option schools is also done through petitions. Petitions must include an explanation of the extraordinary circumstances prompting the need for the child to transfer outside of the standard lottery process. A petition is evaluated by PPS staff taking into account all stated reasons and consideration of space at the requested school. Paper Applications for your grade level and language can be found on the right of this website.

    For more information regarding the petition process see the Petition Process Overview page.
