The school will request a copy of a student's records from the previous school attended. If the child was enrolled in a Texas public school, these records will be requested from the previous campus electronically. If the transfer is out-of-state, the request will be made by the campus personnel via fax. The information will include identification number (either social security number or state number), county-district-campus number, campus name and phone number, sex, ethnicity, date of birth, and current grade level. Most districts will also send grades and standardized test scores. Special education records must be requested separately.
