2022-23 Special Circumstance Transfers
Updated May 13, 2022
All students approved for a Special Circumstance Transfer (formerly known as a General Student Transfer) in 2021-2022 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 2022-23 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.
