Transfer Applications are to be used by students who live outside of the catchment area for a requested school but would like to apply to attend there. If you have moved and want to apply to attend your new catchment school, please complete a Registration, not a Transfer Application. Students must currently be registered in the Richmond School District to complete a transfer application.
