    The transfer window will briefly re-open during the week of registration/schedule pick-up (July 26th through July 30th, 2021) for anyone who missed the initial transfer window.  Please review the information below to ensure that your transfer needs are considered throughout the transfer process.

    Who Should Complete A Transfer Application? A transfer application should only be completed by a parent (district employees included) who wants their child to attend a school that is DIFFERENT than the school zoned for their current address.

     

    POINTS TO REMEMBER

     

    If a student is currently ON an approved INTRA-DISTRICT TRANSFER (lives INSIDE Denton ISD) and is not moving to another campus, the parent does NOT need to apply for a transfer.

     

    If a student is currently ON an approved INTRA-DISTRICT TRANSFER (lives INSIDE Denton ISD) and the student is moving from 5th to 6th grade and/or 8th to 9th grade the parent MUST complete a new transfer request application.

     

    If a student is currently ON an INTER-DISTRICT TRANSFER (lives OUTSIDE Denton ISD), the parent MUST complete a new transfer request application every year.  This includes district employees.  All inter-district transfers must reapply EVERY year.

     

    A REQUEST TO REMAIN is considered when a student moves outside of the district or into a different Denton ISD attendance zone DURINGTHE SCHOOL YEAR. Request to Remains are only valid for the current school year in which the petition occurred. If a student is approved for a request to remain, this school year, their parent MUST apply for a transfer during the open transfer window to remain at the campus for subsequent years.

      

    If a student moves during the summer or fails to apply for a transfer during the open transfer window, the Request to Remain option is not available.  The student must apply for a transfer during the open transfer window.

     

     
     
     
    Please move forward with your child's registration and scheduling process at the school zoned for your current residence.  If your transfer is approved, this information will easily transfer over to the receiving school.

    Please note that campus capacity may vary by grade level.

     

    Due to pending enrollment numbers, all Kindergarten transfer requests will be "Wait-listed" until enrollment numbers stabilize.  Parents are required to complete the application and to enroll their child at their home campus until a transfer decision is processed and communicated to you in August (this could possibly be after the first day of school).  Because a vast majority of the information communicated is aligned, please allow your child to participate in Meet the Teacher Night and attend activities at the campus zoned for the primary residence of the parent or legal guardian.

     

    When reviewing petitions for student transfers, the district will consider each request on an individual basis; however, the regulations below are in place to ensure consistency in our process.  The transfer petitions will be considered by the Board’s designee during the specified window each year. If the designee denies the transfer request, the parent may file an appeal to the Superintendent’s designee during the open appeal window (Secondary only). 

     

    A transfer request is a privilege.  An approved transfer to a specific elementary school does not guarantee approval to a specific middle school, just as a transfer approval to a specific middle school does not guarantee approval to a specific high school.
