All intradistrict transfer permits are granted based on space availability. Requests received after the priority transfer window closes will be considered after those turned in during the window.
 
Intradistrict transfer requests for currently enrolled students are only accepted during the priority transfer window.
 
Parents of new students enrolling after the priority transfer window may submit an intradistrict transfer request at the time of enrollment.
 
Intradistrict transfers do not need to be renewed. Once approved, the intradistrict transfer school becomes the student's new home school, even if the family moves to another address within the district.
 
Students approved for an intradistrict transfer must demonstrate satisfactory attendance, effort, academic achievement, and behavior.
 
Intradistrict transfers are not accepted for the transitional kindergarten (TK) program. TK is a districtwide program with classes offered at various, but not all, school sites. We will endeavor to place TK students at their home school if a TK class is offered there. However, if TK is not offered at the student's home school or if the TK class is full, the student will be placed at another district school for TK and then returned to their home school the following year for kindergarten.
 
Transportation is not provided for students who have been approved for an intradistrict transfer.

Once an interdistrict transfer has been approved and the student has been enrolled in the Cypress School District, there is no need to renew the transfer unless required by the district of residence.

When a grade level is full at a school, the district may need to administratively transfer a newly enrolled student to another school within the Cypress School District that has seats available to ensure optimal class size for student learning. This can be a temporary placement or made permanent if a child settles, is happy, and the parents do not want to move their child. When space becomes available, the student will be offered the opportunity to attend his/her home school. The home school office will call the parent, and the parent may either accept or decline the offer.
