When my son transferred we went to the new school, filled out a new student packet and they took care of getting all the records from the old school. They are neighboring school districts, though. I would make sure I have the old school's phone and fax numbers on hand. My ex and I had joint custody, and he switched from my exes school district to mine, so we waited until the beginning of summer to do the paperwork. That way he was included on all the attendance sheets. Sometimes they are almost an afterthought if you don't get the paperwork in early.
