APPLICATIONS WILL BEGIN BEING ACCEPTED:
MONDAY, JAN. 6, 2014 AT 7:20 A.M.
Under School Choice, a parent can request his/her child be transferred to another school within the district other than the one assigned for their residence. School Choice applications for the 2014-2015 school year will be accepted the first business day of January through the last business day of February.
Application forms can be picked up at any NEISD campus and submitted at any NEISD campus. All applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis using the date and time when the application form was submitted. Parents can submit only one school choice application for each child. In other words, parents may not request multiple schools under this process.
NEISD does its best to accommodate families' requests; however, students are only transferred if there is space available at the requested school. The District maintains a buffer number of seats at schools in order to have seats available for families moving into the attendance area. If seats are not available at the requested school, applicants will be approved on a contingency basis and placed on a waiting list for the school/grade requested. Names on a waiting list that are not offered a seat during the school year will automatically be moved to the next grade level on the waiting list at the end of the school year.
If a child is transferred under School Choice, bus transportation will not be provided to the requested school.
Students accepted for School Choice transfer will be not be eligible for varsity competition for one calendar year. However, the student may apply to the UIL for a waiver, but is not guaranteed that such waiver will be granted. The student and/or parents are advised to check with the North East ISD athletic office for advice regarding the waiver process.
