Dear current and potential Mathews Families –
Please make not of the changes to the AISD transfer policies –
Admissions: Intradistrict Transfers and Classroom Assignments were approved by the AISD Board of Trustees on April 27, 2015. The changes impact the admission of priority transfers into frozen schools (i.e., schools with no available space). There are three types of priority transfers: majority-to-minority, sibling, and tracking.
Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, in an effort to relieve overcrowding, majority to minority transfers will only be accepted at campuses where space is available. Space is not available at frozen campuses. Superintendent Paul Cruz will announce the list of frozen campuses for the 2016-2017 school year on December 14, 2015.
Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, in a continuing effort to relieve overcrowding, in addition to the majority to minority priority transfers, sibling and tracking transfers will also only be accepted at campuses with space available. An announcement of which schools will not have space in 2017-2018 (i.e., frozen), will be made in December 2016.
