Screen Shot: Choosing Transfer Student

Transfer Students

A message is displayed on the top of the page with the total number of students who were transferred and returned to your school. 


This section is used to define the transfer date. This date will be used as the student’s departure date.

Select/enter the Transfer Departure Date. The Date must be a school day after the student’s last day in school. For example, if the student’s last day is Friday, enter Monday’s date. This is a mandatory field.

The Teacher Notices checkbox displays the status of the Teacher Notices as per your school preference. You are allowed to change the value. If the checkbox is ON, then transferred students will appear on the Add/Delete Notices for Teachers Report if they meet the criteria defined in the school preference.

Transfer to School

This section is used to select the school(s) to which the student(s) will be transferred. Based on a Board preference you will be able to transfer students to only one or
to multiple schools.

Select the School the majority of students will be attending from the picklist. Only schools within your Board are displayed. If one or two students are not transferring to the same school as the majority of students, their selections can be individually altered after entering this information. If transfer to multiple schools is allowed at your Board then a list of several schools can be built for transfer. For example, you can choose to transfer your students to two different schools for the next year, where the students would be registered in one school for the first semester and in the other school for the second semester. This is a mandatory field.

Click Add  to create the transfer schools list. If you decided to add another school after the Student List was created, you will need to refresh the students' list to add the second school to every Student listed by clicking Find again.

Click Delete to delete a school from the list. If you decided to remove a school after the student list was created, you will need to refresh the students' list to remove this school from all listed students by clicking Find again.

Transfer Default Values

Select the demit reason from the picklist. The demit code would be This Board or a code that has been mapped to this standard code. These were established in the Demit Reasons validation table.

The Reason for Leaving School field will appear if the Board preference Display Reason for Leaving School is checked. Select the reason from the picklist. This list is maintained in the Reason for Leaving School validation table.

Select All Early Completion Courses are Completed to indicate all courses have been completed for students with early completion courses. If not all courses are completed for all students you will be allowed to indicate which courses are not completed after you find the students.
