We released two new features today: counselor requested transfers and site transfer management.
Counselor Requested Transfers
Sometimes counselors need to request and monitor transfers for students. This may be necessary for a few reasons including student safety. Whatever the reason, you can assign counselors a role within K12 Transfers and that allows them to request and monitor transfer requests. They cannot approve the transfer requests but they can monitor them so that they do not need to burden staff with transfers status updates.
Site Transfer Management
Sometimes, you have sites within a district that operate mostly independently from the district. A common case might be a specialty or charter school. Normally, you would have to send a list of transfer requests to the school in an email/spreadsheet that the site would approve. Then you would update your master list with the approved transfers. Now, you can grant a site the ability to manage its own transfers directly within K12 Transfers. This allows the site to manage the transfers and for the district to monitor the transfers without resorting to email chains and spreadsheet lists.
