3. Any application not approved at the campus level will be reviewed by the Superintendent of Schools
and make the final decision.

4. The parent will be notified as soon as a decision is made regarding approval or non-approval of the

Continuing Transfers:
Transfers are approved for one school year only. All students must re-apply each year. The approval of a
transfer does not guarantee future transfer approval for the next school year. The student’s attendance and
discipline during the current year will be evaluated prior to approval for the coming school year. In an effort
to meet the needs of our current Out of District Transfer students DISD will offer early enrollment and
approval for these students. In April, transfer parents will receive a letter with a renewal application form in
the mail. If the parent wants to continue the student’s transfer, the following process will be followed:

1. Communication to the parents of all current transfer students in April.

2. Parents should complete and return the application form as soon as possible in order to
assure a spot for their student(s).

3. These applications will be processed and parents will be notified of approval prior to the
school year.

Factors Considered in the Approval Process:
Factors considered in approving Out of District Transfer applications include, but are not limited to: building
capacity, current program or campus enrollment, growth projections, grade level enrollment, teacher
allocation, professional staff allocations, and the student’s behavior and attendance history.
All UIL rules regarding student eligibility for competition will be followed. Approval of An Out of District
Transfer application does not verify the student’s eligibility for competition under UIL rules. Students in
athletics who move from one high school to another are ineligible for varsity competition for one year by UIL
rules. Students may not transfer for athletic purposes. Students who participate in UIL athletics must verify
eligibility through the District Athletic Director. All required paperwork and documentation must be provided
in order for the student to be considered for participation in athletics in Dalhart ISD.
Revoking Transfer:
Transfer students must follow all Dalhart ISD rules and regulations, including but not limited to: District
Policies and Regulations; the Student Code of Conduct, and Attendance Requirements. Students who
transfer into the district may have their enrollment revoked if the student does not adhere to all policies and
regulations or based upon poor attendance, excessive tardiness, or inappropriate student behavior.
