There is no separate application to fill out the permit from your district serves as an application. If you are seeking a transfer based on employment in Albany, there is a form you must submit with the permit. It is available at the District Office, 904 Talbot.

Preference is based on category (work-related, childcare, other), not date of submission. …If you have questions, please call Linda Baker at 558-3765.” R.K.
