Transportation will be the responsibility of the parent except as otherwise noted by state law, District policy or Board action
If a student requests a transfer to a different high school other than his/her own campus after beginning the freshman year, he/she is not eligible to participate in any UIL varsity activity until he/she has been enrolled in and regularly attended that school for a minimum of one full calendar year (365 days) or as determined by District UIL Eligibility Committee. UIL varsity activities will include all varsity athletics, extra-curricular teams and squads, marching/concert band contest, choir competitions, academic competitions and solo/ensemble competitions. If a change in residence is made, the student will not be eligible to participate in any UIL varsity activity until he/she has been enrolled in and regularly attended classes at that school for fifteen (15) calendar days. All issues of eligibility are subject to UIL authority and District regulations.
Reasons a Transfer Request may be denied:
Appealing a Transfer Denial
If a student’s transfer request is denied by the District’s transfer committee, the parent/guardian may submit a written appeal and include further documentation to support the rationale of the appeal’s request. Phone or verbal appeals will not be accepted or considered. An appeal should state why the transfer should be reconsidered and must be filed within ten (10) district business days of the date on the District’s transfer denial letter. The appeal will be reviewed within ten (10) district business days of receipt if at all possible. If the transfer committee’s original decision remains unchanged, no formal written communication will be sent to the parent/guardian. If the denial is overturned by the Appeal Committee, the parent/guardian will receive written communication. All appeal decisions are final.
