Inter-District Student Transfers for Children of Non-Employees

Parent and child live outside the Pearland ISD boundary. Parent is not a fulltime PISD employee. You must select Inter-District $50 Transfer in the Student Transfer Program.

These transfers are for students eligible for first grade or higher. No kindergarten or Pre-k students are accepted for this transfer due to the uncertainty of class sizes. Younger siblings of current transfer students are not an exception.

Application Period – 12:00 AM, February 1, 2024, to March 8, 2024, 11:59 PM

Space may be limited at some campuses. Input your application early to avoid any problem. The automated program will shut down precisely at 11:59 PM on March 8, 2024, and will not allow late applications. Due to the high volume of transfer applications, the details involved, and limited summer staff, we must follow the deadline equally with all applicants to ensure preparations are in place for the next school year.

All required documents and payment must be submitted online together, attached to the transfer application, uploaded with the completed application. Payment must be made individually per each student application, paid on each transfer application. We cannot accept partial applications. Please do not delay in applying once the application period opens. It may cause you to miss the deadline. The automated program will not accept any early or late applications.

The following campuses/programs are closed to inter-district transfers unless the student is a current transfer student attending that campus or a current transfer student in that feeder pattern. Additional campuses and/or programs may close as they reach capacity. (See feeder pattern transfer instructions below.)

Sablatura Middle School
Berry Miller Junior High
Pearland Junior High West
Dawson High School (has limited space, will close when the spaces are filled)
Turner High School

Feeder Pattern Transfers

The transfer program will not allow you to select a campus that is closed. If a student is a current transfer student attending a closed campus, or is a current transfer student in that feeder pattern, on the transfer application you will select “feeder pattern transfer” under the campus selection drop down to continue the attendance pattern. Input a note/comment indicating “feeder pattern transfer” and state your selected campus. (See FAQ for more information)

Information you need prior to applying for a transfer:
  1. The district name and campus name of the school where your child is zoned to attend next year for the grade applied for. Students transfer from the school they are zoned to attend for the grade applied for, even if they have never attended that school. They do not transfer from homeschool, private school, charter school, school they attended on a transfer, etc.
  2. You will need the county code, district code, and campus code of the school your child is zoned to attend next year for the grade applied for. These are not zip codes, area codes, or phone numbers. Contact your zoned school or zoned district office for the information. All school principals/secretaries should know their codes. You may also look up your zoned school on the TEA website at: (Some schools are listed by their full name.)   (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 are zoned to attend next year.) Do not input N/A or leave blank. Applications will be rejected without the correct information.
  3. If your child attended a school other than Pearland ISD during the 2023-2024 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 2023-2024 school year to establish eligibility, and records/details of any Special Program that your child qualifies to receive services for.
  4. Application must be made by the parent the student lives with who is listed as parent on the student birth certificate, or by the legal guardian who the student lives with. A legal guardian must upload the court order appointing them as legal guardian with the application.
