Withdrawal during the school year:For all withdrawals during the current school year contact the counseling office-Nancy Knutson 952-848-3131. Students who attend school their last day will carry a withdrawal form around to their teachers for grades and book clearance. All books must be turned into the teachers and/or counseling office. If there is no clearance, the withdrawal form will be held until obligations are cleared. If the student is not in attendance, books will be collected from the parent and the withdrawal form will be held until signatures/grades can be obtained. Records will be held until all obligations are cleared.
Withdrawal during the summer months:If your move is during the summer months, please contact the high school counseling office-Nancy Knutson 952-848-3131.
What we need to know:
- The name of the school the student is transferring to and the city/state
- Are moving to a new address?
What is an official transcript?An official transcript is stamped and sealed. It should remain sealed until it is opened by the registrar or enrolling staff member at the new school. Generally, the new school will ask for the records to be faxed to them.
What are withdrawal grades?These are grades submitted by each teacher indicating grades the student has earned up to the time he/she left their class. The new school will need these grades to give the teachers some guidance as to how the student is performing in that class. Not all grades may transfer. It may depend on the availability of classes at the new school.
