Student Transfers

Student transfer requests for the following school year will be open during the month of February, if you are:

  1. a full-time employee with K-12 student(s) currently enrolled in MISD, and
  2. a parent/guardian resident of Mesquite ISD with K-12 student(s) currently enrolled in MISD

The above transfer requests must be submitted no later than the last day of February at 11:59 PM*.
*New full-time employees may request a student transfer upon hire.

District administration shall consider compelling hardship to the student or family, availability of space and instructional staff at both the school and within the feeder pattern, and the student’s disciplinary history and attendance records.

Important Things to Remember:

  • You will need to submit one form per student. 
  • School bus transportation is NOT provided to transfer students.
  • Students in K-12 are the only students eligible for a transfer.
  • Transfer requests must be submitted and approved annually. 
  • Notice of approval or denial will be communicated no later than the last day of the current school year.
  • Only one transfer may be approved per student per school year.

Student Transfer Requests Process

Please see below for detailed instructions on how to complete a transfer request for your student. New for 2024-25, if your student is currently enrolled in a Mesquite ISD school, you will complete your request through Skyward Family Access. If you are a full-time Mesquite ISD employee and your child does not currently attend a MISD school, please follow the instructions under the "new to MISD" section below. 

2024-25 transfer requests for current MISD students are closed.

Parent/Guardian Student Transfer Request

On a very limited basis, MISD may approve students to transfer from one school to another. Victims of certain offenses defined by state law are given top priority and require legal documentation. A parent or guardian may request a transfer to another campus outside of their attendance zone as long as the parent or guardian is a resident of the district.

Transfer requests closed for 2024-25
