    Instruction for Employees

    Employees must register their employee information in the program to have access past the deadline for non-employees, or to request your work location as the campus if it is a closed campus.

    If you are a recent hire:  The program will not recognize you as an employee until all of your employment information has been processed by the HR Dept., Technology Dept., and Payroll Dept. If you are a full time employee and the transfer program does not recognize you as such, contact those departments to expedite the processing of your employment information.

    The following campuses/programs are closed to inter-district transfers unless the parent is a full-time employee at that campus, or the student was a transfer student attending that campus prior to being named a closed campus. Additional campuses and/or programs may close as they reach capacity.

    Magnolia Elementary
    Sablatura Middle School
    Pearland Junior High East
    Pearland Junior High South
    Pearland Junior High West

    Dawson High School
    Turner High School
    PACE Center

    The transfer program will not allow you to select a campus that is closed unless the parent works full time at that campus and their employee information is registered in the program. If a student was a transfer student at a closed campus prior to the campus being closed, you will select “previous campus attended” to continue attendance.

    Information you need prior to applying for a transfer:

    1. The county code, district code, and campus code of the school your child is zoned to attend for the 2021-2022 school year. These are not zip codes or phone numbers. Contact your zoned school or zoned district office for the information. (example: Brazoria County is 020, Pearland ISD is 908, Pearland HS is 001, so their code is 020/908/001. Your code will vary by county, district, and campus where you live and are zoned to attend.) Applications will be rejected without the correct information.
    2. The district name and campus name of the school your child is zoned to attend for 2021-2022.
    3. If your child attended a school other than Pearland ISD during the 2020-2021 school year you will need to submit records for the schools attended including attendance, punctuality, and discipline records for all of the schools attended during the 2020-21 school year to establish eligibility, and records/details of any Special Program that your child qualifies to receive services for.
