Texas statue 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.
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.

- Pick up an application from the Superintendent's office (403 E. 11th Avenue)
Application must be completed and returned to the campus principal. The application will also require board approval.
