Consideration of Transfer Request (FDA local)
In evaluating each transfer request, Aubrey ISD will consider:

Student’s behavior, and attendance history;
Overall effect the transfer will have on the home and receiving school;*
Current enrollment and growth projections;
Teacher allocations and class size; and/or
Other factors relevant to a particular transfer request.
*Aubrey ISD will not increase staff allocations to accommodate transfer requests.
Consideration of the effect of the transfer may differ at elementary and secondary schools.
Aubrey ISD generally will deny or freeze a request seeking transfer to campuses where the affected grade level enrollments are projected at 90 percent or greater of class size expectations.
Secondary – A variety of factors will be considered to determine whether the transfer would negatively affect the particular campus’s ability to maintain reasonable class sizes.
Aubrey ISD will cap interdistrict transfers up to an 8% cap of non-staff transfer students.
Aubrey ISD does not provide transportation for transfer students unless otherwise required by law. Parents whose transfer requests are approved will be responsible for providing transportation to and from the campus.
Intradistrict Transfers may be approved by the Superintendent or designee, which will assist in maintaining a balanced enrollment among the District’s campuses. An official Intradistrict application for such transfer must be submitted annually. This application must state the reasons for requesting an Intradistrict Transfer.
INTRAdistrict Transfer Requests for the upcoming school year MUST be returned to the AISD Administration Office annually by July 1 to secure a seat at the requesting campus.
All applications will be reviewed to determine whether or not Intradistrict Transfers may be accepted using the following criteria:
The Aubrey Independent School District does not accept Intradistrict Transfer applications for students who are residents of other school districts [see Policy FDA (Local)].
An Intradistrict Transfer will be approved for those qualifying students who are not offered required educational services on their home campuses [see Policy FDB (Local)].
Transportation convenience or baby-sitter location will not be considered as reason for the Superintendent or designee to reassign an individual student [see Policy FDB (Local)].
No Intradistrict Transfers will be approved if such a transfer creates a need for additional staffing, changes in classroom space, or causes an enrollment imbalance.
Intradistrict Transfer students may be returned to their home campus in order to reestablish enrollment balance if an unexpected increase in enrollment on the requested campus occurs.
The Aubrey Independent School District reserves the right to limit or to restrict Intradistrict Transfers to any campus
All Intradistrict Transfer approvals are conditional. Students who create behavioral or attendance problems may be returned to their home campuses immediately, and/or their transfer applications may not be approved for the subsequent year. No district transportation will be provided for Intradistrict Transfer students. In applying for an Intradistrict Transfer, parents assume responsibility for transporting their students to and from school.
