CMS offers students the opportunity to request placement in a different school/program through the Request for Reassignment/Transfer process. Reassignment and transfer are different processes offered at different times throughout the year. Reassignment request are not accepted to schools on the Closed for Reassignment List. A request to a closed school will be processed as a transfer. Transportation is only guaranteed if the request is to the student's home school or to a magnet, Career & Technical Education(CTE), or school option program that serves the student's transportation zone.

- A description of the interventions developed to prevent the bullying from recurring and details on how they have been implemented; and
