AISD intra-transfer application deadline scheduled for April 30

In News by Reporter News

The deadline to submit an intra-district student transfer request is Thursday, April 30. The parents of any and all Alvin ISD students wishing to be considered for a transfer must submit a completed application to the Office of Student and Administrative Services, located at 701 S. 2nd St. in Alvin, by the deadline.

Only students with a completed transfer application on file by April 30, who either have extenuating circumstances, or are “grandfathered” will be given consideration.

Alvin ISD students are assigned a specific campus to attend based on the attendance zone in which they reside. Families with an extenuating circumstance, or those who are “grandfathered” in may submit a student transfer request to remain on a particular campus, or transfer to a campus outside of the assigned attendance zone. All requests must be submitted prior to the deadline of April 30.

Current 7th grade students who will enter 8th grade during the 2015-16 school year, and were rezoned based on the updated 2015-16 attendance boundaries, have the ability to submit a transfer request under the “grandfather” clause. This clause allows the student to complete their 8th grade year at their current campus. The application for this request must also be submitted by April 30. Please note that transportation is not available for students utilizing an intra-district transfer.

Students currently on a transfer for the 2014-15 school year must also submit a new transfer request application to be considered for a transfer for the upcoming 2015-16 school year.

Students who reside in Alvin ISD and participate in one or more of the following programs are exempt from needing to submit a transfer request: Elementary Dual Language, Bilingual, and Special Services; Junior High MAP, Orchestra and Special Services; High School ROTC, Culinary Arts, Gymnastics, and Special Services. Special Services are based on Availability.
