     Intradistrict Transfers

    BISD accepts intradistrict student transfer requests once a year in the Spring. Transfer requests for current BISD students must be made during this time period and will not be available after that date for the upcoming school year. Students who are new to the district or have physically changed addresses may apply after the deadline. The transfer application must be completed in its entirety before being submitted. Until a transfer request has been approved, the student must register at his/her school of residency. Parents will be notified if their transfer request was approved or denied.


    Nonresident Interdistrict Transfers

    For a high school student whose parent or legal guardian lives in city of Burleson (but NOT BISD), or within the 76028 ZIP code (but NOT in BISD), and wants to attend school in BISD.
