2021-22 Special Circumstance Transfers
Updated July 30, 2021
All students approved for a Special Circumstance Transfer (formerly known as a General Student Transfer) in 2020-2021 will be allowed to remain on a transfer without completing a new application. The exception to this are students transitioning to middle or high school. Parents of students in a transition year (fifth or eighth grade) will have to complete a new transfer application at the end of fifth grade (before entering sixth grade) and at the end of eighth grade (before entering ninth grade).
Special Circumstance Transfers are based on specific criteria and transportation is not provided. Approvals are based on space availability and excludes campuses designated as closed due to projected campus utilization for the 2021-22 school year. The parent/guardian of any student currently enrolled in Fort Bend Independent School District (FBISD) or a student 18 years of age or older currently enrolled in FBISD may apply for a Special Circumstance Transfer to a campus other than the home campus if the student meets one of the three criteria below.
- The student has a serious medical/mental/psychological health condition, documented by appropriate medical personnel, and the documentation indicates the student’s needs cannot be met at the student’s home campus. Transfer decisions will be delayed until documents are received.
- A student is a victim of a documented physical assault and the student committing the assault is enrolled at the victim’s home campus.
- A student is a victim of documented bullying and/or cyberbullying which has been verified by the home campus.

2021-22 Public Education Grant (PEG) Transfers
Updated February 23, 2021
The Texas Education Agency did not issue campus ratings for 2020, therefore, Public Education Grant (PEG) identified campuses will be based on 2019 campus ratings for the 2021-22 school year. For the 2019-20 school year, Fort Bend ISD had no identified PEG campuses.
For the 2021-22 school year, Fort Bend ISD has no identified PEG campuses. In accordance with federal guidelines, any students currently on PEG transfers may remain at the non-PEG transfer campus for the duration of their current level (e.g. elementary, middle, or high) or they may return to their home campus. Additionally, in order to keep siblings together at the same campus, parents may apply for a Special Circumstance Transfer (SCT) to unite the siblings at the non-PEG transfer campus. Parents will continue to be responsible for transportation.
Students that wish to remain at the non-PEG transfer campus are expected to meet attendance and discipline expectations applicable for any transfer student. PEG transfer students transitioning to middle or high school will be returning to their zoned campuses since PEG transfers will not be offered for the 2021-22 school year.
