Each year, elementary and middle school students in Frisco ISD have the opportunity to transfer to a different campus through an application process.
While a 2020-21 transfer window was opened to the general public January 20 to February 7, an additional summer transfer window will also be available July 14-29.
Those who applied for a 2020-21 transfer earlier this year will not need to reapply.
The summer transfer window is intended to provide families peace of mind as they plan for the upcoming school year, while also allowing the District to better plan for staffing and program needs.
Students can transfer within the District to campuses with a projected enrollment of less than 90% capacity for grades K-8. Transfer requests submitted for campuses other than those listed on the District website will not be considered. Click here for the list of eligible campuses.
When reviewing petitions for student transfer, the District considers each request on an individual basis but strives for consistency throughout the process. Approval for one year does not guarantee nor imply the approval of future transfers to the same campus or feeder campus.
While high school transfers will not be approved, there is a special exception for incoming seniors. Seniors who attended a Frisco ISD campus their entire junior year and would like to stay at the same campus during their senior year should submit their “Senior Rule” request July 14-29. The Senior Rule allows the Class of 2021 to stay at the same campus, even if they move out of their zone.
After the July window, the next student transfer opportunity will be at semester break.
Parents interested in learning more information can find additional details on the student transfer section of the FISD website, including the Administrative Guidelines that provide an in-depth clarification of the transfer policy and priority guidelines.
