5. A separate online Application must be completed for each student.
 
6. You may choose up to three schools to which you would like your child to transfer.
 
7. You will not pay the $65 transfer fee until the transfer is approved. The transfer fee is non-refundable, regardless of reason.

14. All parents will receive notification of process results. If there is not an opening at any of the school(s) you requested, your child's name will be automatically moved to the waiting list(s).
 
15. If there is an opening at one or more of the schools you requested, you will have 48 hours to log in, choose which school you will accept, and pay the $65 transfer fee, if applicable. If you do not accept the opening and submit the transfer fee (if applicable) before the deadline, the opening will be offered to the next child in line. In addition, any openings you do not accept will be immediately offered to other students. This process will continue until all available openings have been filled by in-District student requests.
 
15. From March 30th through May 1st, the New Transfer Application system will be open to take names for the waiting list only. In August 2015, schools will process names from waiting lists if additional openings are identified.

(*If your home school (the school you would attend if you did not have a transfer) is no longer a PEG school in 2015-16 (Lamar, Shackelford, Morton, and Roquemore will not be PEG schools next year), you may renew your transfer but you will need to renew as a Regular transfer, not a PEG transfer.  You must now pay the $50 transfer renewal fee.)
 
Above is a list of AISD schools identified under the Public Education Grant (PEG) Program. This list, effective for the 2015-16 school year, identifies campuses which were rated Academically Unacceptable under the statewide accountability system. A student enrolled in any of these campuses may apply to attend another campus in AISD which is not rated unacceptable. If your child attends any of these PEG schools, you should have received a letter from your school stating that your campus is a PEG campus. If you wish to enroll your student in another AISD school for 2015-16, applications for new transfers will be online from Monday, March 2nd at 2:00 p.m. until Friday, March 6th at 3:00 p.m. Further information regarding new transfers will be posted on this site by February 15. There is no transfer fee unless you choose to transfer into another PEG school. No transportation will be provided. If you have questions about PEG, please see the PEG FAQs on the left side of this page; if you have questions about why your school is a PEG school or the strategies your school will implement, please contact your campus Principal.
