Please note: This does not apply to students on a program transfer or other district placements, such as:

Students in transition years (5th, 8th & 10th grades) in the programs listed above will revert back to their home campus feeder unless parents submit an intra-district transfer request.

2024-2025 Inter-District Transfers

- Transfers are not allowed from one campus to another during academic semesters.
Inter-District Transfers are considered beginning the third Monday in April through the fourth Friday in June.
Campuses Closed for Fall 2024-2025
Due to building instructional programs and functions, enrollment projections, staff assignments, boundary changes, and/or anticipated construction projects we will NOT be approving requests to transfer for the fall semester of the 2024-25 school year TO the following schools:
- Shepton High School
- Renner Middle School
- Brinker Elementary
- Daffron Elementary
- Gulledge Elementary
- Jackson Elementary
Transfer requests to all other Plano ISD schools will be considered on a space/staff available basis in the particular grade level/classroom. Several grade levels in a building may be closed to transfer students due to staffing and enrollment.
This list is subject to change.
Can I reverse a transfer?
Intra-district transfer is a commitment for at least one semester. Transfers or reversal of transfers to return to the home campus are not granted during semesters.
Inter-district transfers are granted annually but the parent may choose to withdraw their student at any time and return to their home district.
How long does a transfer last and can it be revoked?
Once approved, the intra-district transfer is in effective for all grade levels in the designated feeder unless the school becomes overcrowded or the principal revokes the transfer. When a change of level is made (elementary to middle school, middle school to high school, etc.) a new transfer form is not needed unless the student would like to return to their home campus feeder or select a different school.
Siblings are not guaranteed approval to the same campus. Transfer availability will be evaluated at the time of their request.
An Intra-district transfer 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 transfer campus.
Intra-district transfers are revocable at the fall semester or end of school year.
Once approved, the intra-district transfer continues to be in effect for all grade levels in the designated feeder, which applies unless the transfer is revoked or parent fills out a new transfer for the child to attend a different school or request to revert the current transfer for the child to return to their home feeder campus. Siblings are not guaranteed approval to the same campus and will be evaluated at the time of their request.
Intra-district 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.
Intra-district transfers are revocable at semester and year’s end.
