It will not affect the other party's parenting time within any fashion. I don't see anything within the MSA that says that I can't move within the city. Do I need to do anything as far as what the law says?

this answer depends on your decree. if you both share joint legal custody, it is customary for both parents to be involved in this type of school decision - unless your decree states differently.
