Learn more about transfers for your student’s grade level

Student transfers to elementary schools listed as “open” will be approved on a space available basis and if expectations for student behavior, attendance and academies have been met. Should a grade level or program be near capacity, the student transfer may be denied. A “closed” elementary school may still accept transfers of employee’s children if it does not cause the grade level or program to meet capacity. Student transfers to any campus will only be approved if the additional student would not result in additional staffing or facility needs at the receiving campus.

Student transfer applications must be submitted by the parent or guardian and reviewed by RRISD annually. Approvals for continuation are not guaranteed year to year. Please take this into consideration when applying for a student transfer.

Q: What does it mean for a school to be “open” for student transfers?
A: An elementary is considered open to student transfers if the projected capacity for the entire school is less than 95%. However, certain grade levels may be projected to be at capacity and will not accept transfer students. A transfer student will not be accepted if it puts the receiving campus at risk of hiring an additional teacher for that grade level.

Q: What does it mean for a school to be “closed” for student transfers?
A: An elementary is considered closed to student transfers if the projected capacity for the entire school is 95% or higher. However, should an employee’s child submit a transfer application and it would not put the grade level at risk for hiring a new teacher, it may be approved.

Q: Why might my child’s transfer be denied?
A: A student transfer may be denied if a review of the child’s record indicates concerns with attendance, tardies, behavior or academics. A student transfer may be denied if the addition of another student puts the receiving campus at risk of adding an additional teacher to the grade level. A student transfer may be denied if the child resides outside of Round Rock ISD and is not the son or daughter of a RRISD employee.

Q: What if I live outside of the RRISD attendance zone?
A: The only new student transfers approved for children residing outside of the Round Rock ISD attendance zone are for current Round Rock ISD employee’s children.

If a child has been attending his/her home campus and moves outside of the district during the school year, he/she may apply to stay at the campus for the remainder of that academic year. Attendance, tardies, behavior and academics will be considered.

If a child lives out of district and is planning to move into Round Rock ISD within 60 days, he/she may apply for a student transfer to attend school in RRISD. Proper documentation will be required prior to a transfer approval.

Q: How long can a student stay on a transfer?
A: Each student transfer is approved for one academic year at a time. Applications for students to remain on a transfer must be submitted, reviewed and acted upon annually.

Q: What is Public School of Choice?
A: Round Rock ISD Public Schools of Choice embrace a single, school-wide “anchor model” around which educational experiences are designed, such as a Science,Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) model, a performing and visual arts model, or an multi-linguistic and intercultural model.

Q: Why isn’t transportation provided to each Public School of Choice?
A: With the exception of the Arts Integration Academies, Joe Lee Johnson and Caldwell Heights elementaries, the District is unable to provide transportation to campuses other than the campus the student is zoned to attend.

Both Arts Integration Academies will have pick up and drop off available at campuses students are originally zoned for. Please refer to the chart to determine which Arts Integration Academy your student would attend.

Students on a transfer attending Joe Lee Johnson and Caldwell Heights elementary’s, will be provided transportation if the student resides more than two miles from the campus.

If transportation is not needed, students residing anywhere within District attendance boundaries many apply to either Academy or any District Public School of Choice that is accepting transfers.

Q: Is there a wait list for schools that are not accepting transfers because they are at capacity?
A: The District does not manage a wait list or participate in a lottery system. If you are interested in sending your student to one of Round Rock ISD’s Elementary Public Schools of Choice that is accepting transfers, submit your application as soon as possible, as transfers are approved on a first come, first serve basis by grade level availability.

Q: Am I eligible to transfer to a Round Rock ISD Public School of Choice?
