Transfers are considered on a hardship basis, and if granted, they are a privilege. The District will not become involved in family disputes between joint conservators of students. Should a situation arise, the transfer consideration may be revoked.
Rockwall ISD adheres to the neighborhood school concept. Therefore, all students shall be assigned and attend the school in their home attendance zone. As the District continues to grow, there is less availability of space at campuses to allow for student transfers outside their home attendance zones.
For this reason, requests for intra-district transfers will generally be denied unless extenuating circumstances, such as a documented compelling hardship, exist. Residence changes are not considered a compelling hardship.
All decisions are based on:
- School enrollment capacity
- School grade level capacity
- Documented compelling hardship
Things to consider:
- No transportation is provided to transfer students.
- An application and fee are required every year a student attends outside their attendance zone.
- Campuses are closed to transfers when they reach a certain percentage of capacity.
June 1, 2018, is the deadline to file a transfer application due to staffing and scheduling at the campus level.
