    Decision letters will be sent to families in late April.

    The application window is now closed.

    Things to Know Before Applying

    • Transfer applications must be submitted each year.

    • It is the expectation that students attend the school in the attendance area in which they reside. 

    • Belton ISD does not provide transportation for transfer students. Transportation will be the responsibility of the parents.

    • These campuses are closed to new transfer requests because of enrollment caps:
      • Chisholm Trail Elementary
      • Lakewood Elementary
      • Leon Heights Elementary
      • Tarver Elementary
      • Sparta Elementary

    • In evaluating a transfer request, the following criteria will be considered:
      • Program needs of the student and program availability of the campus;
      • Available space of the school to which the student requests a transfer; 
      • Extraordinary family considerations;
      • UIL rules
      • Student’s attendance and/or discipline history

    • The following criteria will not be considered:
      • Legacy requests (i.e. historical familial relationships to Belton High School) 
      • Grandfather requests (maintaining current campus enrollment for a duplicated program)
      • Requests for specific staff, campus, or duplicated programs 

    • District employees may apply for transfers for their child but must meet the criteria outlined on this site.

    • Late applications will only be considered if unforeseen, extenuating family circumstances exist or there are verified changes in residence or military orders after the deadline.
