Families living within HISD may apply to have their child transferred to a school other than their "zoned" campus. Transfers are available for students wishing to attend specialized schools or programs, and for those with special circumstances.
The student transfer program includes Magnet Program Transfers or Special Transfers. Magnet Transfers can be completed online or by downloading the application from the magnet website. You may also download the special transfer form from the transfer department website. The HISD Office of School Choice handles all transfer requests.Out-of-District TransfersWhen the school of choice accepts a student from outside its attendance zone, HISD requires that parents agree to keep the student at the chosen school for the entire school year, and parents must assume responsibility for the student's transportation.
