Secondary Open Transfer Information

  • As a result of the lasting effects of COVID-19; the District has elected to change the Student Transfer Process to the lottery system used for 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.

    Several FWISD campuses have been identified as "limited" campuses because they are near their maximum enrollment capacity. However, these campuses may accept transfer requests, but they will be placed on a wait list and enrolled based upon selection and available space. (*The wait list does not apply to Programs of Choice). Please see the campuses identified as "Limited" campuses below:
