Elementary academies included in transfer opportunity
Every year the Arlington ISD offers a Transfer Window for students who want to join us in the Arlington ISD or make a change within the district. This year’s Transfer Window, which runs until Tuesday, Dec. 1, takes your future to another level.
You can transfer now to set yourself up for success for the 2021-22 school year, which is when changes for this transfer window go into effect.
In addition to being able to transfer to any of our traditional schools, students are also allowed to transfer to one of our five elementary academies during the campaign. That means Jones Academy, Corey Academy, Wimbish World Language Academy, Pearcy STEM Academy and Crow Leadership Academy could have spots for your child based on availability. The academies are focused on everything from fine arts to learning French in Pre-K. (Learn more about our specialized programs.)
During the Regular Transfer window, priority is given to children of full-time Arlington ISD employees, then city of Arlington residents who reside outside the district boundaries, and then all other non-residential requests for transfers.
Even if you’re not looking to move to one of our academies, you can still transfer in the Arlington ISD to any one of our traditional elementary, junior high or high schools. All of the spots are based on availability and you can rank your choices one through three. So, if you’re zoned for one school but now live closer to another, this is your chance to make the commute a shorter one. If you’re looking for a change of scenery in the Arlington ISD, this is that chance. If your kid’s best friend is in a neighboring district and they want to go to school together in Arlington, act before Friday and that could be a possibility.
You already know about the advantages of being in the Arlington ISD from fine arts to athletics to highly-qualified teachers. You know the priority we put on safety in our district. You know we make sure all of our students are fed.
Take advantage of this special chance by acting by Dec. 1.
