Ken: OK, thanks for the clarification. Still, I don't see mid-year transfers as evidence of some systemic problem.

In elementary school, I transfered mid year from one that wasn't working for me, to another in which I thrived. I am eternally grateful for that move. I know quite a few parents who moved their kids between schools mid year for reasons to do with fit, opportunity, or community. For example, I know one kid who transferred to a special school for its academic program, but then transferred back to his local school mid year because he missed his friends.
