    If you apply for a Hardship transfer, you will need to provide a reason for the Hardship request in the application site.


    Once you have completed an application for transfer you will need to submit your child’s final report card as well as standardized test scores (STAAR, Iowa, ERB, Stanford etc.) from the 2018-2019 school year, as well as the most recent report card from the fall of 2019.  These documents should be uploaded to the application.


    Students will only be approved for ONE transfer for the 2019-2020 school year.  If you accept a transfer to another campus you WILL NOT receive final approval from the HISD Office of School Choice for another transfer.
