2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR TRANSFER PROCESS - into Dallas School District

  1. By March 15, the Dallas School Board shall establish the maximum number of nonresident students, if any, that will be given admission for 2020-21 school year under this process. Applications must be submitted to the district office in person, by regular mail or email for consideration.

  2. To transfer into Dallas School District, the process begins with your resident school district and completion of the appropriate transfer request from that district.  The authorized representative of your school district must first sign the transfer application form before being submitted to Dallas School District.  Please contact your resident school district office to access their “transfer out” application.   

  3. Applications will be considered and processed on a space available basis only. The district shall provide written notification of admission of a nonresident student.  No nonresident transfer request applications will be considered or processed after December 15, 2020 for the 2020-21 school year.


Please review the District’s policy regarding admittance of nonresident students carefully --
