• The deadline to submit a transfer request was June 1, 2019. 

    Rockwall ISD adheres to the neighborhood school concept.  Therefore, all students shall be assigned and shall 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 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
    • Student's behavior and attendance record

    Things to consider:

    • Transfer requests received after the June 1st deadline MAY be considered for children of employees or children who move during the summer.
    • Transfers are considered on a hardship basis, and if granted, they are a privilege.
    • Transfers are considered before school begins in August.  Transfers are not allowed during the academic year, except in extraordinary circumstances.
    • Sibling status will not guarantee transfer approval.
    • Transfers shall be granted for one regular school year at a time.
    • Violation of the terms of the transfer agreement may result in a transfer being revoked during the current school year or not being approved the following year.
    • The District will not become involved in family disputes between joint conservators of students.  Should a situation arise, the transfer consideration may be revoked.
    • A non-refundable transfer application fee of $50.00 (cash or credit) per student is due at the time of application. ($30.00 for district employees)
    • Transportation will not be provided for transfer students.
