Intra-District Student Transfer RENEWAL Process
April 1st through April 20th is the time frame for communication between the campus Principal and the transfer student’s parent/guardian the intent to remain on a transfer for the upcoming school year or attend the zoned campus.
Campus Principals will review the student’s records to determine if qualifying criteria is still being met by the student.
CONTINUATION OF RENEWAL
If the student has the Principal’s approval to continue on a transfer, a letter will be sent with each approved transfer student asking them to indicate their desire to remain on a transfer for the upcoming school year or return to their home campus.
Students are asked to return the bottom portion of the letter to the campus office by April 20th indicating their desire to remain on a transfer for the upcoming school year or attend their zoned campus.
NOTIFICATION OF NON-RENEWAL
For any transfer student not meeting qualifying criteria, the campus Principal will meet with the transfer student’s parent/guardian and communicate their plan to non-renew and the reason.
Students administratively transferred due to class size or participation in a special program will be notified that they may return to their home campus for next year unless they desire to remain on the transfer campus. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify the Principal if they are hoping to stay on the transfer campus.
Transportation is provided for Administrative Transfer students ONLY. Parents/Guardians will assume transportation responsibility for non-administrative transfer students.
- Attendance: Meets 90% for the previous semester and the most recent grading period, including tardies
- Attitude/Behavior: Student is exhibiting appropriate conduct and work habits
- Parental Cooperation: Parent/Guardian is supportive and cooperative with school staff
REASONS FOR RESCISSION OF TRANSFER
Student transfers will be evaluated for continuation by the campus Principal each spring. A decision to not renew may be made if the student does not:
- Obey all school rules and regulations as listed in the BISD Student Code of Conduct
A transfer can also be rescinded if a parent does not cooperate with school staff or if they falsify information for the purpose of transfer approval. Parent/Guardians may be punished under the Texas Penal Code, Chap. 37 Sec. 37.10 for falsified information. It is important to note that the District will not hire additional staff, provide additional classroom space, or apply for a class size waiver in order to accommodate transfer students. Therefore, student transfers may be revoked if there are unexpected increases in student enrollment.
- Attend school regularly with 90% attendance for the previous semester and the most recent grading period including tardies
