    Student Transfers

    Transfer request to schools will be considered on space and staff availability.  Space availability will be evaluated in each grade level and/or program and transfers will be approved based on this evaluation.  Parents should be aware that the transfer request will not be approved if additional staff or classrooms are needed to accommodate the transfer student.  There are NO guarantees that children who transfer will be able to continue at the requested campus in future school years.

    District Students Who Become Nonresidents

    A resident student who becomes a nonresident during the school year may be allowed to maintain enrollment in GPISD schools by submitting a Student Transfer Application.  Applications must be completed by the parent/guardian.  If approved, the student shall attend the same school in which the student was enrolled while living in the District.  For additional information or questions, contact your campus principal or the Student Admissions Department.
