Intradistrict (within district) Transfer Guidelines

    • A student shall be assigned to a school in the attendance area in which he or she resides.
    • All transfers must be filed with the Executive Director of Student Services and be approved by the Superintendent or designee in accordance with FDB (Local). All transfers are subject to space available at the requested campus.
    • All transfer requests shall be submitted each year for review. In evaluating a request for transfer, the following criteria shall be considered:
      • Program needs of the student and program availability of the campus;
      • Available space of the school to which the student requests a transfer;
      • Extraordinary family considerations;
      • UIL rules; and
      • A student’s attendance and/or discipline history.
    • The District reserves the right to revoke an intradistrict transfer request to a campus for the following reasons:
      • Violation of standards contained in the Student Code of Conduct or student handbook;
      • Unacceptable attendance;
      • Space unavailability;
      • Any District exigency that would require adjustments in campus enrollment; or
      • False information was provided on the intradistrict transfer form.
    • Campus capacities will be reviewed annually. Campuses that are at their capacity threshold will be closed to any new intradistrict transfers.

    Considerations for 2020-2021 Intradistrict Transfers:

    • The transfer request will be granted or denied by July 31, 2020 after priority has been given to students residing in the requested school’s attendance zone.
    • Priority is given to returning transfer students who are entering 5th, 8th, 11th or 12th grade.
    • Students who have two consecutive years of enrollment at a campus as a transfer student will have priority.
    • Approval of this request is based on space availability as well as prior year attendance and discipline.
