Transfer Policy Information

Here are the main things to know about transfers.

  1. The student must live in the AISD residency zone..
  2. Where a student attended elementary school does not impact in any way her/his ability to acquire a transfer.  No automatic transfers are given for attendance at any elementary school.
  3. If the student is zoned to Bedichek, then he/she will attend Bedichek regardless of whether or not he/she is accepted into an advanced academics program. No transfer is required.
  4. If the student is NOT zoned to Bedichek, then they have to have a transfer to attend.
  5. Types of MAC transfers:
    1. AISD employee transfer
    2. Curriculum transfer
      1. This transfer is only obtained through acceptance into the Einstein, Jr. or Entrepreneurship programs.
      2. After acceptance is reported from the campus, this transfer is done through the district office, Student Services, automatically.  No action is required from the student.
      3. A curriculum transfer supercedes any previous transfers received, and, therefore, any other transfer obtained at any time will be removed.

To see where your residence is in relation to school/district zoning, go to: AISD School Assignment by Residency

 

If you submit a transfer request for a priority or general transfer prior to applying to this program, acceptance into this program will supersede an approved priority or general transfer.
