Sibling Transfer Process
If you are trying to get a sibling approved for a school that a sibling is attending, you may not need to apply for Choice. In order to use Sibling Transfer Request you must have a student at the school where you want the upcoming student to attend. (Sibling Transfer Form does not apply to Centers or SWS magnets.) The student that is enrolled at the requested school must be there at the same time the new student is attending their first year. You will need to do the following:
- Download the Sibling Transfer Request Form.
- Fill out the form and return it to the Districts Registrar’s Office by faxing the form to 803-738-7378.
- The District Registrar’s Office will review, verify and communicate an approval or denial to the parent.
