Student Transfer Information

  • The 2024-25 student transfer window has closed. 

  • Keller ISD Resident or Currently Enrolled Student Request
    Application Window: February 1-May 31, 2024

    When reviewing student transfer requests, the requesting campus administrators will consider each request on an individual basis and decisions will be made depending on space availability, along with adherence to the following guidelines: 

    • Student's academic, attendance (including tardiness), and behavioral history; 
    • Student's need for special education services not provided at home campus; 
    • Evidence of physical or medical needs of students; and 
    • Feeder pattern progression (students are not guaranteed progression through feeder pattern campuses).

    Meeting any or all of the above criteria does not guarantee approval. Keller ISD will not increase staffing allocations to accommodate transfer requests. Consideration of the effect of the transfer may differ at elementary and secondary schools. 

    All transfer decisions made by campus principals are final and may not be appealed.

  • Student Transfers for Keller ISD Employees

    These requests will be evaluated with the same guidelines as all other transfer requests.
