Campuses Closed for Fall 2020-2021
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 2020-21 school year TO the following schools:
- Barksdale Elementary
- Beverly Elementary
- Daffron Elementary
- Gulledge Elementary
- Hunt Elementary
- Jackson Elementary
- Schell Elementary

- Stinson 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 the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, all transfer application fees are being waived at this time . This list is subject to change as periodic updates and modifications of actual and projected enrollments, building capacities, staff assignments, and attendance boundary changes are confirmed and when limits are approved and campuses must be closed.
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.
