Letter Whiz offers a sample of a school request letter. The letter is formatted by first informing the district that a transfer is being requested; the name of the student and school they are currently attending should be listed, as well as the school they wish to transfer to.
In the second paragraph, the request letter should list the reasons why the transfer will benefit the student's education and social development. This may include higher academics or a specific sport or program that is not offered at the current school. Finally, the contact information for the student or parent should be listed at the end of the letter.
