Transfer Application - Approved Offers
All applicant families, please read the following information carefully:
While preparing to proceed through the transfer timeline and make school offers, a change has been made within the application. Previously, the application included only the offer of the highest ranked transfer request. In the spirit of transparency, the applications now include all approved offers. Upon receipt of an offer, applicants will only be able to make one choice. Once an offer is accepted, any other offer from a campus will be rescinded. Please choose carefully, as your decision to accept or decline may open a seat for another student on the wait-list.
If you have further questions, please contact the office of Academic Performance and Support.
Any parent requesting a renewal application for a student currently on transfer to an SBISD school may do so through Schoolmint beginning Monday, April 3rd, 2017, at 8:00.am. Please contact your student’s school if you have questions regarding the renewal process.
