    TRANSFER RULES:

    • No transportation is provided by the district, except as required by other laws.
    • Apply January 23 to April 30, 2019.  Late applications will be considered on a case by case basis.
    • Students who do not enroll or choose to withdraw may lose their transfer permission.
    • Approved students may remain at the campus up to the highest grade, if the student continues to meet transfer rules and expectations.
    • A new application must be filed when a student requests to move to a different campus.
    • Students must abide by all UIL rules. Students should check eligibility rules with the school.
    • Expectations: "If the transfer is approved, the student is expected to follow school rules, attend school regularly, maintain passing grades, uphold appropriate behavior, and participalte in school activities when possible.  Parents are expected to assist their children in their academic efforts, support good behavior, ensure their children are on time and ready for school each day, and be supportive of the school's goals and objectives.  Failure to meet any of these expectations may result in a transfer being revoked."
    • District policy also states that transfer permissions will be reviewed during the spring semester and can be revoked based on "poor academic performance, low attendance, and/or misbehavior."  In addition, demographic changes in boundary zones or increases in zoned student population, may affect a school and cause a revocation or reduction of transfer permissions.  
    • In the spring, the campus will notify the parent of any concerns regarding the transfer and revocation.
    • If the permission is revoked, the student will need to enroll in their home campus the following year.
    • Annually, the district will identify schools at maximum capacity and close transfers at those schools.
    • In some cases, an immediate revocation of the transfer permission will be required.
