Students may request intra-district transfers each spring prior to the district opening enrollment to students outside the district. Fairfield Schools does accept students for early admission to kindergarten who demonstrate aptitude and readiness.
TRANSFER TUITION PROCESS
(for families living outside the district wishing to attend Fairfield Schools)

Fairfield Community Schools is accepting students for the 2017-2018 school year, 

Indiana Code 20-26-11-32 requires that school corporations that choose to accept transfer tuition must annually set the number of transfer tuition students they will accept from outside the district. Once these caps are set, the district also can set a deadline for accepting transfer students from outside the district. Further, once the deadline is reached, if the number of applications exceeds the number of available transfer tuition slots, the district is to hold a lottery for those transfer positions.
 
Fairfield Community Schools accepts transfer tuition students with no transfer tuition charged for families who choose to send their students to one of our schools. For the 2017-2018 school year, the number of students to be accepted from out of district are as follows:
 
Grade Level   Number of Slots for Non-Automatic Transfer
 KG    45

 5 7
 6 11
 7 24
 8 8
