Azle ISD Student Transfer Guidelines

  • Azle ISD Student Intra-District and Inter-District Transfer Guidelines
    (Employee and Non-Employee)

    All applications for transfer are required to meet the following standards:

    • The student must not have more than three (3) unexcused absences for the current and the previous school year.
    • The student must be passing all classes in the current school year and have passed all classes in the previous school year.
    • The student must have passed all portions of his/her latest state test/assessment exam for the current (if applicable) and past two years.) Students from home school, private school, or a non-accredited school must show satisfactory scores on a standardized achievement test.
    • The campus principal may request to meet with the parents and student and have parents provide documentation of the above standards.
    • The student must not be transferring for athletic purposes.
    • In the current (if applicable) or previous school year, the student must not have more than three (3) office referrals, a single DAEP assignment, or committed an act that could result in expulsion.

    Factors that will be considered in approving transfers include, but are not limited to:

    • Building capacity,
    • Current program or campus enrollment,
    • Growth projections,
    • Grade level enrollment,
    • Teacher allocations,
    • Professional staff allocations,
    • Student’s academic history, behavior, and attendance.

    Other factors:

    • Students entering kindergarten are exempt from attendance and academic standards.
    • Students who participate in University Interscholastic League (UIL) athletics are excluded from open enrollment transfers until they have verified eligibility through the Director of Athletics at 817-270-1725.
    • Students who transfer for athletic purposes may lose all remaining eligibility.
    • All transfer students who are outside the campus attendance boundaries must reapply and qualify annually.
    • Application is by the student and not family. This is required because the student is applying for a specific empty seat in a specific grade at a specific campus.
    • The campus principal may deny a transfer for the next school year if the student has poor attendance, excessive tardiness, or inappropriate behavior (i.e. more than three referrals, or placement in DAEP or expulsion).
    • Azle ISD will not consider race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, age, sexual orientation or preference, military status when considering transfer requests.
    • In the event of overcrowding, the district reserves the right to move an out-of-district transfer student to another campus if space is available.
