In-District Transfer

  • Students interested in attending a school outside of their attendance zone must submit an in-district transfer request. The window to submit an in-district request for the 2022-2023 school year is Tuesday, March 1, through Monday, May 2.

    If the transfer is approved, students can complete every grade level available at their assigned school on a conditional basis. A new transfer request must be submitted for students in transition grades (entering kindergarten, 6th and 9th) if they wish to continue and enter a feeder school outside of their attendance zone.


Application Process

  • Thank you for your interest in Irving ISD. Here are the steps to register your child: 

    Step 1

    Complete the In-District Application to begin the application.

    The application requires the following:

    • Proof of Residency: a current lease agreement, electrical or gas bill or a utility bill  
    • Parent/Guardian valid Texas driver's license or Texas identification card indicating the correct address. **This verification will take place at the child's campus in August. 

    Step 2

    The Campus Operations Department will notify families via phone or email about their child's application status- approval or denial. 

    Step 3

    If the transfer application is approved, families will need to review and submit the Transfer Agreement provided by the Campus Operations Department. 

Transfer Guidelines

  • Before submitting a transfer request, review the Transfer Guidelines: 

    • All requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • Requests must be submitted online.
    • The Department of Campus Operations oversees the approving and/or denying of in-district transfer requests. Campuses will not distribute or accept transfer forms. 
    • A student's academic, discipline and attendance record will be considered. Approval or denial will also rely on campus capacity numbers as projected on the Estimate of Classroom Space and Discretionary Transfer Capacity. 
    • Once approved, transfer students are able to complete every grade level available at the assigned school without renewing annually, if terms of the transfer agreement are upheld. 
    • Transfers are subject to revocation. In the case of revocation, parents and the student's home campus will be notified. 

     Bus transportation is not provided for transfer students. Families are responsible for arranging their student's transportation to and from school.
