There are three schools that current Crest View families can choose to transfer to in the fall of 2025: Edinbrook Elementary School, Fair Oaks Elementary School and Zanewood Community: A STEAM School. Families can get a quick glance of each of these schools via eb.district279.org, fo.district279.org and zw.district279.org. The best way to learn about these schools is to attend the preview night in late September 2024 or schedule an individual tour. 

Learn More about Where can families learn more about the fall 2025 transferring schools?

Yes. Families that choose one of the three fall 2025 transferring schools will receive free transportation services. This will remain in place until 2024-25 Crest View students reach fifth grade at their transferring school. Note: Transportation services in middle and high school would follow established practices. Many times this is dependent on a family’s home address.

Before and after school care will be offered via the Community Education Kidstop program. Edinbrook Elementary School is the host site for a few schools in the area, including Fair Oaks Elementary School and Zanewood Community: A STEAM School. Families who sign up their student for a consistent schedule contract receive transportation to and from their student's school. In this instance, that would be for families that choose Fair Oaks and Zanewood. Of course, parents/caregivers are still responsible for dropping off their student in the morning and picking them up in evening. 

Learn More about Will before and/or after school care be available at 2025 transferring schools?

Families must complete a Choice School Transfer Form for each of their current Crest View students and any kindergarteners scheduled to begin at Crest View this fall (2024-25 school year). The form will be available Oct. 1, 2024, which will be just a few days after the school preview night at transferring schools.
