    Transfer day

    Transfer day will be Monday, January 7th, with doors opening at 7:45 AM at the Plano ISD Administration Building on 2700 W. 15th Street.

    Transfer Limits List
    Please note this is not an automatic approval for your transfer request. This is only an online numbering system to hold your place in line.

  • General Information

    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. 

    Transfers requested from June 15 to the first day of class will be considered for:

    • Children of employees,
    • Children who move during the summer,
    • Children new to the district
    • Students who wish to enroll in a Board approved magnet course not offered at their home school.

    Transfers are considered before school begins and at mid-term. 

    We do not allow transfers from one campus to another during the academic semesters.

  • Application Fees

    non-refundable transfer application fee of $50.00 (cash or credit only) 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.

  • Campuses Closed for Fall 2019-2020

    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 2018-19 school year TO the following schools:


    • Barksdale Elementary
    • Carlisle Elementary
    • Gulledge Elementary
    • Mitchell Elementary
    • Schell Elementary


    • Renner Middle School

    Transfer requests to all other Plano I.S.D. 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.

    Due to enrollment and staffing issues involved with specialized programs no transfers will be granted for pre-kindergarten programs offered at Isaacs, Beaty, and Pearson Early Childhood Schools and Head Start during the 2019-20 school year.

  • Can I reverse a transfer?

    Transfers or reversal transfer requests to return to the home campus are not granted during semesters. 

  • How long does a transfer last and can it be revoked?

    Once approved, the transfer continues to be in effect until the student completes the grade levels on that campus. 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.
