Transfer Information (2021-2022)

Cypress-Fairbanks I.S.D. supports the concept of neighborhood schools and community involvement. Students are assigned to a school according to an attendance area based on each student’s respective primary residence as determined by the District. If a student desires to attend a school other than the campus they are currently assigned, the District provides the following options:

  1. Optional Transfer Requests are approved based on the number of spaces that are available in a particular school and/or grade. In addition, prior to this type of transfer being approved, the following shall be considered:
  • reason for transfer;
  • receiving campus’ enrollment;
  • receiving campus’ class size; and
  • time of the school year i.e.) state testing, end of year, etc.

*Please note that Optional Transfer Requests cannot be accepted or processed in response to boundary changes approved by the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Board of Trustees.

 The 2021-22 Optional Transfer Request will be available by September 7, 2021.



  1. Move Into/Move Out of the Attendance Zone Transfer Requests are available to currently enrolled CFISD students who are entering grades 5, 8, 11 or 12 and move to a new CFISD school attendance zone after school dismissed on June 3, 2021. The aforementioned students may use this form to request a transfer to remain at their previous campus. Students who moved during the 2020-21 school year and/or outside of the district are not eligible for this type of transfer.

    In addition, families who have a signed contract on a home within CFISD may also use this form to request a transfer to begin their school year at the CFISD campus that is zoned for their new address, provided the sale of the home will close during the first semester of school year.
