Student Transfer Request

The parent or person standing in parental relation to any student may request, by petition in writing, the assignment of a student to a campus other than the home campus in the attendance zone in which the student resides. An application may be submitted by clicking on the links below. Only one transfer may be granted per school year. The application must be submitted within the designated time-frames.

Residence: A student’s residence shall be defined as the domicile which is the student’s fixed, permanent, and principal housing for legal purposes. A student does not establish a bona fide residence by living in the District or a particular attendance zone for only a portion of the week or only on school days unless this arrangement is specified in a divorce decree or other court order.

Reasons for Approval

Transfer requests are approved only when the student meets approved criteria (as listed below) and there is a capacity to accommodate additional students at a school or in a grade level.

Klein ISD shall not provide transportation for approved transfers. Transportation will be the responsibility of the parent.
 High school students are not guaranteed parking privileges.

The following are acceptable reasons for granting approval of a transfer request:

  • Change of Residence (Student may remain at the current school until the end of the current semester).

  • full time or part time (must be eligible for benefits) district employee may transfer his/her child(ren) to the school where he/she works or to an open campus.

  • full time or part time (must be eligible for benefits) district employee, with an approved transfer, whose job location changes due to reassignment, may apply for a transfer to leave his/her child(ren) at the current campus.

  • Serious medical/mental/psychological health conditions are approved reasons for an intra-district transfer if documented by appropriate medical personnel and if there is documentation that student’s identified needs cannot be met at the home campus.

  • A student is a victim of a documented physical assault and if the student committing the assault is at the victim’s home campus.

  • A student is a victim of documented bullying.

  • When documented and unresolved student conflicts exist that cannot be addressed at the home campus, an intra-district transfer may be approved.

  • Other extenuating circumstances.

Reasons for Denial
The following are reasons for denial of an intra-district transfer:

  • Overcrowded conditions at receiving campus or requires the employment of additional staff; Campuses at near capacity or above will be closed

  • Record of poor grades, poor attendance, late arrivals, late pickups, grades, and/or disciplinary infractions at home campus

  • For the purpose of participating in an extra-curricular activity at receiving campus

  • Previous transfer already granted for the current school year

  • Falsification of information

  • Failure to meet deadlines
