  • Can I reverse a transfer?

    Intra-district transfers

    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

    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?

    Intra-district transfers

    Once approved, the intra-district transfer continues to be in effect until the student completes the grade levels on that campus. However, approval of an intra-district transfer does not guarantee future intra-district 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.

    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 at the new campus.

    Intra-district transfers are revocable at semester and year’s end.


    Inter-district transfers

    Once approved, the inter-district transfers are in effect for one school year. The parent must complete the TEA transfer request form each year.

    Inter-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 at the new campus.

    Inter-district transfers are revocable at year’s end.
