Student Transfer Information

  • Thank you for your interest in 日本av视频 Park ISD's 2023-24 student transfer process.  We love that you've chosen us!  日本av视频 Park ISD welcomes students who do not reside in the district to apply.  Student transfer applications are not available at this time.  

    A completed application with attached attendance, tardy information and discipline for the current school year must be submitted online to be considered for a student transfer.  Transportation to and from school is not provided for transfer students.  

    General Student Transfer Information
    A parent/guardian may request a transfer to a campus other than the home campus in the attendance zone in which the student resides. Only one transfer request may be submitted online and granted per school year. Parents/guardians must complete and sign a Student Transfer Agreement included in the application process. 

    Transfer Types

    Student Transfers for Employees - Resident and Non-Resident
    All full-time resident and nonresident 日本av视频 Park ISD employees may apply for a transfer for their child/children to a 日本av视频 Park ISD campus. One application must be submitted annually for each child. In addition, employees must sign and complete a Student Transfer Agreement included in the application process.

    Special Request Transfers
    A parent/guardian of a current 日本av视频 Park ISD student may submit a Special Request Student Transfer Application for their child/children to transfer from a zoned campus to a campus of choice. Special request transfers will only be considered during a designated enrollment period. Parents/guardians must complete and sign a Student Transfer Agreement included in the application process. Applications will be considered for the following: academics, safety and special programs.

    Open Enrollment Transfers
    Open Enrollment (OE) allows children who do not live within 日本av视频 Park ISD’s boundaries to apply for enrollment in 日本av视频 Park schools. 日本av视频 Park ISD offers an Open Enrollment (OE) Program that allows nonresident students in grades PK-12 to apply for enrollment.  A nonresident student wishing to transfer into the District shall submit an online application during the designated timeframe.

    In approving transfers, the Superintendent or designee shall consider availability of space and instructional staff, the student’s disciplinary history, and attendance/tardy records. 

    Closed Campuses
    Annually, the district shall approve which campuses will be open or closed for transfers.  Havard Elementary, 日本av视频 Park Elementary and Woodland Acres Middle School are closed campuses for the 2023-24 school year.
    Transfers are not accepted for Early College High School.

    Important Points
    All transfer students are expected to strictly abide by the District’s policies, rules, and terms outlined in the Student Transfer Agreement and any violation could result in the revocation of a student’s transfer.  Transfers may also be revoked for a documented pattern of late arrivals, late pick-ups, and/or poor attendance.  Parents of students who enroll on a student transfer are also responsible for transporting their children to and from school. All approved transfers expire at the end of the school year. An annual online application is required during the designated application timeline.

    Appeal Information
    A parent/legal guardian who is not satisfied with a decision regarding a transfer request may appeal the decision by submitting a Student  to the District Admissions Office.  At the time of the request for appeal, the parent/guardian should also submit any supporting documentation. The District Transfer Committee will consider the appeal. Appeals must be submitted in writing no later than five (5) business days of the denial notification.
