Secondary Open Transfer Information

  • The Fort Worth ISD District student transfer process has transitioned to a digital format. The Student Transfer Process will utilize a lottery system similar to the Fort Worth ISD Gold Seal programs. Parents may request a transfer from their child’s home school to another campus, where space is available. 

    A transfer, once made, shall remain in effect as long as the student is in the same school. Parents will be responsible for transporting their child if granted a general transfer.

    Public Education Grant (PEG) transfers from low-performing schools will also be accepted during this timeframe. However, a student from a PEG campus may not transfer to another low-performing school. Campuses that have been identified as PEG campuses have already received transfer information.

    They are:

    • Como Montessori
    • Jacquet Middle School
    • William James Middle School
    • Leonard Middle School
    • Morningside Middle School

However, these campuses may accept transfer requests, but students will be placed on a wait list and enrolled based upon selection and available space.
