Our Mission

  • The purpose of the Urban-Suburban Interdistrict Transfer Program (“Program”) has been established by New York State law and the regulations of the State Education Department (SED). The purpose is:
    “To voluntarily decrease racial isolation, deconcentrate poverty and enhance opportunities for students in the Rochester City School District and in the suburban districts of the Greater Rochester Area.”
    In order to accomplish this mission, pupils residing in the participating districts may apply for transfer from the Rochester City School District to suburban school districts or from suburban districts to the Rochester City School District through the Program.
