Student Transfer Request Guidelines & ProceduresOut-of-District Transfer Requests:
Allen ISD does not accept out-of-district transfers except under the following circumstance:
- Transfer requests for children of Allen ISD employees living outside the district will be considered. The student must be in good standing with their current school district in regards to attendance and discipline. If you are a permanent, full time employee and would like to request an out-of-district transfer, please email Vickie Anders at firstname.lastname@example.org
In-District Transfer Requests:
The deadline for submitting Transfer Request forms for the 2018-2019 school year has passed (with the exception of employees hired after June 15, 2018). The deadline for submitting Transfer Request forms for the 2019-20 school year is June 13, 2019. Transfer requests received after this date will not be accepted.
Any incomplete transfer requests will be returned to the sender with no action taken. A photocopy of two acceptable “Proof of Residency” documents (utility bill and contract or lease agreement on the house/apartment) must accompany each request.
When reviewing requests for student transfers, Allen ISD will consider requests on an individual basis; however, the guidelines below are in place to ensure consistency in our process. Transfer request received for the 2019-2020 school year will be reviewed after June 13, 2019 and letters acknowledging approval or denial will be sent after July 15, 2019. An approval for one year does not guarantee nor imply the approval of future transfers to the same campus or to the feeder campus.Priority Guidelines:
1. Allen ISD has the sole discretion to determine whether space exists at requested transfer campus.
2. Requests for an intra-district transfer during the semester will be denied based on potential
disruption of the educational program at both the assigned and requested campuses.3. Sibling Transfers: Sibling status will not guarantee transfer approval. Siblings must meet criteria for
transfer eligibility to be considered.General Clarifications for an Approved Transfer:1. Parents agree to provide transportation for their student to and from school.2. Student transfers may be denied and or revoked due to poor attendance, excessive tardies,
failure to pick up students at dismissal time, lack of parental cooperation, and/or behavioral
issues.3. Please note that if false or misleading information is provided, the original transfer request will be
subject to revocation and the student will be placed back to their neighborhood school.All questions regarding transfers should be directed to 972-727-7115.
