Out-Of-District Transfers


New Out of District Transfers

SISD is an open enrollment school district.  We welcome students who live outside our boundaries to take advantage of small schools and personalized learning without paying tuition.  Our Out of District Transfer program is open for enrollment based upon program and space availability.  It is imperative that your child remains enrolled at their current school until you receive confirmation that the transfer is approved. A district panel reviews all applications. If attendance, grades, discipline, and Special Program availability meet the guidelines established by Sweeny ISD, the application is forwarded to a district review panel to make the final decision. 

When completing your application, you must upload your child’s 2019-2020 school records (August 2019 – Present). Only complete applications, which include all required documents, will be processed.

Required documents include:

  1. Completed Transfer Application
  2. Report Card/Grade Report
  3. Attendance Report
  4. Discipline Report- If your child had no discipline issues, please ask their school to give you something in writing, on school letterhead, that states no discipline issues.
  5. Most recent ARD document (Only applicable if student receives Special Education Services)


Currently Enrolled Out of District Transfers

Transfers are approved for one school year only. All students must reapply 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 SISD will offer early approval for these students.


All completed applications for the 2020-2021 school year MUST be submitted online no later than June 15th, 2020 for approval. Due to limited space, if you fail to complete and return your application by June 15, 2020, your student may not be able to attend Sweeny ISD for the 2020-2021 school year.
