COVID-19: News and Campus Updates | Fall 2021 Plans

Geographic Area

School transfers are defined as changing from one public school to another and do not include entries or exits to juvenile detention centers or facility schools. Over the last three years, approximately four out of ten school transfers were within school district boundaries (i.e., “within district transfers”).

Within district transfers were concentrated in the Denver Metro Area School Districts, Colorado Springs 11, Pueblo City 60, Mesa County Valley 50 (e.g., Grand Junction), and Greeley District 6. Many of these districts also serve relatively high numbers of students in foster care. Data reported here are the average number of within school district transfers for students in foster care per year. The 2011-12 to 2013-14 school years were used in analysis. 

Between District Transfers

Approximately 6 in 10 foster care student transfers are across school district boundaries (i.e., “between district transfers”). The majority of between district transfers were to adjacent school districts. The map illustrates clustering of foster care student across district transfers into three geographic areas. There are relative few incidents of students in foster care from one geographic area to another (e.g., Denver Metro to El Paso County).
