The guidelines below will be used to determine transfer approval and are in place to ensure consistency in our process.

- For first-time request, applicant must provide documentation of grades, test scores, attendance records, discipline records and other requested records from previous school.
- Due to the rapid growth in the FISD, the Director of Student Services will generally deny requests for student transfers to campuses projected at 90% of capacity or greater as of August 6th. Portable building space will not be included in calculations of percentage of capacity.
- Requests for in-district transfers during the semester will generally be denied based on potential disruption of the educational program at both the assigned and requested campuses.
- Sibling Transfers - Sibling status will not guarantee transfer approval. Requests to transfer to attend a school outside their attendance area with their sibling will be evaluated as all other requests and will not be given preference. Siblings must meet criteria for transfer eligibility.
- Once the school year has begun, new out of district transfers will only be considered during the first two (2) weeks of each semester.
- Frenship ISD reserves the right to limit or restrict transfers to any campus.
