 TRANSFERS FROM PUBLIC OR PRIVATE SCHOOL

  •  If you are moving to Lakeview Elementary School from another public or private school inside or outside the state of Tennessee, you will need a copy of the withdrawal form (this way we know the student is no longer on the roll at the former school). A copy of the student's transcript/recent report card is helpful.  See below for other required documents. Once all paperwork is on file and the student is enrolled, we will request the students' records from the previous school.

 

TRANSFERS FROM HOME SCHOOL

  •  Home schooled students will need a copy of the withdrawal from the home school program and a copy of the report card/transcript.
