A letter requesting a transfer certificate, so that your child can be transferred to another school, does not have to be very long, however it should still be written formally. The letter will need to include your child's name, grade/year that he/she is studying in, a reason for the transfer and  the date that your child will be leaving the school.

The structure of the letter should look like this;



(Date)



To The Principal

(School Name )

(School's Address)



Dear Mr/Mrs/Miss or To whom it may concern,



I am requesting you for a transfer certificate for my (name of your child), of (year/grade that your child is studying in at the moment).



My reason for requesting a transfer certificate is that we are moving to another country/city due to work and I would like (the name of your child) to carry on with his/her education.



I am also grateful for the support that you and your staff have provide for my child. Thank you.



Yours Sincerely or Yours Faithfully,



(Your signature)



(Your name)



(Your contact details, such as your telephone number, email address and home address.)



When writing the date, the month should be written as a word, for example 21st March 2011. When you are starting starting the letter off with 'Dear Mr/Mrs', this should only be used if you known their last name and if you are addressing a woman and you are not sure whether she is a 'Miss' or 'Mrs' use 'Ms', and 'To whom is may concern' when you do not know their name. When you are signing off your letter, use 'Yours Sincerely' if you know their name and have used 'Dear Mr/Mrs', and 'Yours Faithfully' if you do not know their names and have used 'To whom it may concern.' When writing a formal letter, your first paragraph should explain what the letter is about, and get straight to the point, and your last paragraph should explain what actions are expected to be made.

You have to first ask the principal of the school first however, if your request is denied then you write the letter to the appropriate District Office official who handles such transfers. Generally such requests are approved particularly if you show for example that the other school offers courses that your child's school does not have. For instance, say your child wants to pursue a career in television production and the current schools offers no courses but the other school does.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Good day. Madam Please arrange to issue my sister Maureen R. Velayo Who is currently enrolled in your school. We are requesting a copy of her records that she might need on her transferring process. For some reason that our family is moving to Province.

Your prompt assistance in this matter will be appreciated, as it will enable us to complete our files.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Because I work in the area, It would be easier to drop my daughter off and pick her up from School. I drive pass this school everyday on the way to work.

This may be an issue for the school board if you live in a different school zone.
   Write a letter addressed to the School board [find out who would be in charge of this] and request a transfer of your child from school A to school B.   State the reasons for the transfer request.   Check to see if there are accomodations which would allow this transfer [special education, No Child Left Behind considerations, other personal issues].  
    You will probably have to get permission from the principal of the new school as well because of the student/teacher ratio; the overall population of the school, and the ability of the school to meet your child's needs.
    If you can move into the school district it would be a simple matter to transfer because of the zoning your new home would be in.

Dear [Name]:
   I would like to transfer my daughter from School A to School B  because [state reason].   I have checked with the Principal at School B and the student population and ratios would not be an area of concern.
   My child is [whatever the situation... Gifted, challenged, special, has special circumstances] and School B is better for her special needs.

Provide your phone number, thank them for their consideration and sign:

Sincerely,

Your Name

It may not be easy since schools jealously guard their school zones.  I've had several children; and they've been in schools outside our school zone, and it has taken a lot for the special consideration...one was a foster daughter who wanted to finish her sophomore year [a matter of a few weeks] at her current school instead of transferring to the school in the zone we were in.   It took getting special permission from the school board.
   Another was a grandchild...that was easier.  His mother lived in the school zone he went to school in, but he lived with me; so we used her address.  Since he visited her often, it wasn't difficult and the principal was aware of the circumstances.

Good luck
