    Inter-District Transfer ~ Students in grades K

    through 12 who live in another district's

    attendance zone.

     

    When reviewing petitions for student transfers, the Denton ISD will

    consider each request on an individual basis; however, the

    regulations below are in place to ensure consistency in our process.

     

    In approving transfers, the district will consider building and program

    capacity, instructional staff, the student's academic progress, discipline

    history, and attendance records.  

     

    A student requesting an inter-district transfer must file an application

    for transfer EACH school year. Transfers will be granted for one

    regular school year at a time. Until an approved transfer has been

    received,  a student must enroll in and attend their assigned school

    (in their assigned district), based on the residence of their parent or

    legal guardian.

     

    Transfer students are subject to the University Interscholastic League

    (UIL) rules as well as local district guidelines. A student may not

    transfer to Denton ISD for the primary purpose of participating in

    extracurricular activities.  Detailed eligibility guidelines are available

    online and should be investigated fully. Any student who participates

    in extracurricular activities must clearly indicate this intent to

    participate, to assist in the determination of eligibility. In most cases,

    transfer students in grades 9-12 can expect to be ineligible to

    participate in varsity level competitive extracurricular activities for

    a period of at least one year from the first date of attending the

    new campus.

     

    Denton ISD DOES NOT provide transportation for students who are

    approved for inter-district transfers.  Transfer students must be 

    dropped off and picked up on time.

     

    There Is No Appeal For Inter-District Transfers.

     Request to Remain

     A student who lives in the Denton ISD attendance zone, but moves

    outside of the Denton ISD attendance zone during the course of a

    semester will be permitted to continue in attendance at their current

    Denton ISD campus for the remainder of the semester by petitioning a

    "Request to Remain."  After the semester has ended, the student must

    request an inter-district transfer, within the transfer window, for 

    subsequent years.

     

    A transfer student shall be notified in the written transfer agreement

    that he or she must follow all rules and regulations of the District.

    Violation of the terms of the agreement may result in a transfer

    request not being approved for the following year.

     

    Revocation of Transfer

    Reasons for revoking an inter-district transfer shall include, but is not

    limited to the following: 

     

    • Lack of parental support for campus guidelines

    • Student misconduct
