Majority to Minority Transfers
What is M to M transfer? M to M stands for majority to minority. An M to M transfer is where a student who is currently enrolled in a school where his/her race is in the majority chooses to transfer to a school within the district where his/her race would be in the minority. For example an African American student who is currently attending Eastside, JP Powell, or LaFayette High School may transfer to another school in the district where their race would be in the minority. Transportation will be provided. Forms are currently available for M to M transfers for the 2017-18 school year. All requests must be received by May 1.
