    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 except for students who are on a School Transformation transfer (see definitions below).

    TRANSFER WINDOWS

    Mid-Year Transfers in 2023-2024
    Any family seeking a mid-year transfer for the remainder of the 2023-24 school year will only be considered if the student is new to MISD or if the transfer reason is Safety or PEG  (see definitions below). Current students who wish to seek a mid-year transfer will have an open window to submit their request from October 1, 2023 to October 30, 2023. To submit a mid-year transfer, visit the MISD Office of Student Services (615 West Missouri St.) Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 5:00pm or email applymidland@midlandisd.net. 

    Transfer Timeline for Fall 2024
    Apply Midland will open in December 2023 for Round 1 transfers for Fall 2024.  Student Transfers for Fall 2024 will not be taken after August 7, 2024 except for new enrollment, safety transfers, or PEG transfers (if you moved to a PEG zone after the transfer window closed in August).  Additionally, parents who move during the school year but wish to keep their children at their current school must complete a transfer within 10 days of moving to a new address.  These transfers will continue to be accepted throughout the school year. If you have questions or extenuating circumstances, please email applymidland@midlandisd.net.  

    Transfers Timeline for Spring of 2024
    The transfer window for Spring 2024 will be open October 1, 2023 through October 30, 2023. Transfers during this time will be approved pending available space and transfer criteria (discipline history, attendance, and grades).   If approved, students will begin the spring semester at their approved campus.

    Campus Continuation
    Students who have been attending a campus other than their neighborhood campus will remain at the transfer campus unless their transfer is revoked.  Students must be in good standing to remain eligible for a transfer.

    Additionally, a student who is attending a campus when the family moves to a new address may continue at the same campus by completing a continuation transfer at Student Services. This must take place within 10 days after moving into the new residence. Continuation applies to each of the following grade segments: Elementary K - 6th grade, Jr High 7th - 8th and High School 9th - 12th.

    Employee at Campus
    Employees may request a transfer for the student to attend the campus the parent is employed at.  Students must be and remain in good standing to be eligible.

    Sibling Receiving Special Education Services
    Students who have a sibling who is receiving special education services at a campus other than their neighborhood campus may submit a transfer request to attend the same campus as their sibling.  Students must be and remain in good standing to be eligible.

    Transportation Challenge
    Students who have transportation challenges related to their neighborhood campuses may request a transfer due to transportation challenges.  Students must be and remain in good standing to be eligible.  

    STUDENTS WHO RESIDE OUTSIDE OF THE MISD ATTENDANCE AREA

    Students whose parents reside in a district other than Midland Independent School District may request a student transfer to attend Midland ISD by completing a separate "out of district" transfer application.  The "out of district" application may be accessed at Apply Midland. The application process requires that parents provide a copy of the student's discipline report, attendance report, and grade report. Note that Midland ISD may choose not to accept students from other districts.  Also, Midland ISD may charge tuition for students who reside outside Midland ISD. Midland ISD will not provide transportation.

    TRANSPORTATION FOR APPROVED TRANSFERS

    Transportation for all students who attend a campus on a transfer (whether in district or out of district) is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
