A common question we get is how to transfer a child to a different school within Plano ISD. Whatever reason you want a transfer, it is possible, but there is a procedure to follow. Here is how to transfer schools in Plano, Texas.
You need to have all the information on the school you wish to transfer to PISD does not allow transfers to every school.
What Campuses are open to Transfer Schools?
It depends on their enrolment numbers and the capacity available.
For the 2024-2025 school year, the Plano ISD website says that transfers will not be accepted to campuses on the No Transfer list (unless you are reversing to your home campus)
- Shepton High School
- Renner Middle School
- Brinker Elementary
- Daffron Elementary
- Gulledge Elementary
- Haggar Elementary
- Haun Elementary
- Jackson Elementary
- Mendenhall Elementary
- Mitchell Elementary
- Rasor Elementary
- Wells Elementary
Transfer requests to all other Plano I.S.D. schools will be considered on space/staff available basis in the particular grade level/classroom. Several grade levels in a building may be closed to transfer students due to staffing and enrollment.
Once you have submitted a transfer request, you need to allow up to 4 – 6 weeks to receive a decision.
Some schools have different application processes, including Huffman Elementary, Plano East IB World School, Health Sciences Academy, or the Plano ISD Academy, so be sure to check those separately.
Your Transfer Request: What do you need?
A non-refundable transfer application fee of $50.00 per request is due at the time of application.
- 6-digit Student ID# (Only needed for currently enrolled Plano ISD students. This isn’t needed if the child is not yet enrolled)
- Parent/Guardian’s ID
- Proof of residency (one of the following):
- Current electric/water/gas bill (showing service address and usage) or
- A lease agreement is signed by both the tenant and landlord or owner’s representative.
Transfer window dates vary every year
Transfers are approved on a first-come first serve basis to available schools and grade levels. Transfer limits apply and when limits are reached grade levels and campuses are closed to transfers and no waitlists will be offered. Transfer requests will be accepted through the fourth Friday of June.
You will need to submit one form per student.
Students in transition years (5th, 8th & 10th grades) at Huffman, a Dual Language, Math Rocks or Pre-K program will revert to their home campus feeder unless parents submit an intra-district transfer request.
