Dear Parents,

If you are planning to move to Milan or would like to enroll your child or children in our schools, we would welcome your application.  For families residing outside our district, there is no longer any transfer tuition.  Your only responsibility is transportation.  If you are interested in joining our school community, please fill out our  application Transfer Request. We accept transfer students year-round, but it is best educationally to try to enroll your child at the beginning of a marking period.  Thanks.

Sincerely,

Paul Ketcham
Superintendent
