    MISD TRANSFERS OVERVIEW 

    The transfer process is used by families who want to apply to a MISD neighborhood (zone) school that is not the school designated by the family’s address. Transfers are reviewed by MISD staff and approved if the criteria for the transfer is met and there is space available.  Additionally, for a transfer to be approved, the student must have good attendance, a clean discipline record and acceptable grades. All families with students on an existing approved transfer must re-apply for a transfer each school year with the exception of students who are on a School Transformation transfer (see definitions below).
