Transfer into Public Virtual Charter Schools 

In order to transfer to a public virtual charter school you must submit in writing, an intent to enroll to the Banks School District. Questions about enrollment procedures should be directed to the specific charter school.

Per ODE a district may release up to 3% of it’s student population to public virtual charter schools. If a district has reached its 3% cap, the intent to enroll may be denied.  

Hardship Requests

If you need to request a hardship transfer, please complete an Interdistrict Transfer application and attach a letter stating the specific reasons for your request. Hardship cases are reviewed on a case by case basis throughout the school year. When considering an Interdistrict Hardship Transfer, Banks School District will use the following criteria, defined in OAR 581-021-0019 (1)(c).

  • Hardship defined as the student:
    • is being impacted by a parent or guardian’s military deployment
    • is experiencing instability related to homelessness or foster care placement
    • has a documented medical condition that necessitates a transfer
    • is impacted by the death of a parent
    • there is severe financial hardship for the family
    • is involved in a documented case of severe harassment, intimidation, bullying or cyber-bullying

Interdistrict Transfer requests are considered contingent upon meeting behavior and attendance expectations: 

  1. Attendance of 92% or greater;
  2. No more than one suspension per academic year; no suspension of, or greater than, five days;
  3. No expulsions;
  4. Timely transportation is the responsibility of the family.
  5. Any other terms written in the acceptance letter to be applied consistently to all students.
