Student Transfer Information (Out-of-District):

Texas statute requires annual submission of a transfer application form for each student that lives outside the boundaries of our school district.  Application must be completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian each year.  Factors taken into consideration for student transfers include academic performance, attendance patterns, discipline records, space availability and employment of additional personnel, as well as extenuating circumstances that may have prompted the request of the transfer.  

 

Continuing Transfers:

Transfers are approved for one school year only.  All students must re-apply each year.  The approval of a transfer does not guarantee future transfer approval for the next school year.

 

Requesting an Application:

Parent/Guardian may complete or request an Out-of-District Transfer Application in one of the following ways:
