The parent or person standing in parental relation to any student may request, by petition in writing, the assignment of a student to a campus other than the home campus in the attendance zone in which the student resides. An intra-district transfer application may be submitted. Only one transfer may be granted per school year. The application must be submitted within the designated timeframes.
Residence: A student’s residence shall be defined as the domicile which is the student’s fixed, permanent, and principal housing for legal purposes. A student does not establish a bona fide residence by living in the District or a particular attendance zone for only a portion of the week or only on school days unless this arrangement is specified in a divorce decree or other court order.
A renewal application must be submitted annually for all out-of-district employees in order to maintain approved transfer status.
The following are acceptable reasons for granting approval of an intra-district transfer:
Change of Residence
Application for Elementary #28 (The Groves) for General Transfer (no transportation provided) or Flex Zone (transportation provided)
Application for Schools of Choice Programs
Other Acceptable Reasons
An approved intra-district transfer request remains in effect until the reason for the initial request no longer exists. Upon completion of the student’s education at one campus level, a new transfer application will need to be completed but there should be no expectation that a transfer will be accepted to a middle or high school in the same feeder pattern.
Humble ISD shall not provide transportation for approved transfers. Transportation will be the responsibility of the parent. High school students are not guaranteed parking privileges.

The District Transfer Committee will be composed of three (3) central administrators. At the time of the request for appeal, the parent should also submit any additional written information that may assist the appeal committee.
Within ten (10) business days the members of this committee will review the written application and render a ruling on the transfer request. The parent or person standing in parental relation to the student will receive written and/or verbal notification of the Committee’s decision within three (3) business days of the hearing.
