KEY DEADLINE: Two tasks by Feb. 1
1. Use the INTEREST FORM 2021-22 to request any changes in your student's program (5-day, independent study, or home study) for the upcoming school year. (Not required if your student isn't changing programs. If you are not sure what program your student is in, email Chyna.)
2. Complete your Interdistrict Transfer Request Form. If you do not live in the Davenport school district, you will need to apply to your school district of residence every year for an interdistrict transfer to attend Pacific Elementary School. Click here for the Inter-district Transfer Request form. You will complete this form and deliver it to your school district office (not our office). (Not required if you live in the Pacific Elementary School District boundaries.)
Failure to do these two tasks by the Feb. 1 deadline could result in you losing your place in the program of your choice.
Finally, please continue to spread the word about our high-quality programs. Almost all families come to Pacific because they learned about us from a friend!
