Please note that the above address is our location except for two work days per year. On the first teacher work day in January we begin accepting transfer requests for students entering grades 6-12 and on the third Monday in April we begin accepting transfers for students entering kindergarten - grade 5. In order to accommodate the crowd and parking requirements, on these two days we are located in the Board Room at the Plano ISD Administration Office, 2700 W. 15th Street, Plano, TX, 75075. We will remain at this location on these days only until the wait line is served and then we will return to the Coit location. See below information concerning the first dates transfers are accepted.

The first date the office will accept transfer forms for students entering kindergarten - grade 5 for the 2014-15 school year is April 21, 2014. The final day for submission of transfer requests for the 2014-15 school year is June 16, 2014.

Transfer requests for the second semester are accepted in December.
Please consult the list of campuses closed to transfers for the fall semester of 2014-2015 posted here.
Secondary school transfer limits in place can be viewed here. You may further investigate the status of a specific grade level at a campus open to transfers by contacting the office of Student Administrative Services at (469)752-3793 or (469) 752-3794. You may access the 2014-2015 transfer application form in English here and in Spanish here. Please complete the appropriate transfer form, sign and deliver or mail with the application fee to the office of Student Administrative Services at the address on the top of the form.
In many cases to secure a transfer before limits are reached you must apply early and in some cases on the first day transfers are offered. For detailed information concerning the procedures followed on the first day transfer forms are accepted please click here. Transfers are approved on a first-come first serve basis to available schools and grade levels. Transfer limits apply and when limits are reached grade levels and campuses are closed to transfers. Special consideration may be given to students with severe medical conditions or emergency safety issues, children of full-time Plano ISD staff, and for students who wish to enroll in a Board approved magnet course not offered at their home school.
A non-refundable transfer application fee of $50.00 is due at the time of application. Fees are waived for students who provide a copy of their letter issued by the Food and Nutritional Services confirming qualification for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program. Transfers or reversal transfer requests to return to the home campus are not granted during semesters. Once approved, the transfer continues to be in effect until the child completes the grade levels on the campus. Once approved you do not reapply to return each year. However, approval of a transfer does not guarantee future transfer approval to the next feeder school. You must reapply for a transfer to a new campus. Younger siblings are not guaranteed approval to the same campus and will be evaluated at the time of their request.
Transfers may be revoked by the school principal if disciplinary or attendance rules are violated, if there is a lack of academic progress, or if there is a lack of parental cooperation at the new campus. The District does not provide bus transportation for transfer students. Transfer students in grades 9-12 generally forfeit eligibility to participate in varsity athletics for one year from the date of first attending on the new campus.
Transfer requests are approved by the Manager of Student Administrative Services.
