Out of District Transfers

A transfer request form and the $35 transfer application fee will be required each year. Additionally, siblings of these students will be allowed to apply for open enrollment at Dripping Springs High School. Siblings must submit a transcript and discipline record the first year they apply and must submit a transfer request form and the $35 application fee each year they apply.

Grandfathering at Current Campus (2017-18 School Year Only)

  • Families who have been re-zoned to attend Sycamore Springs Elementary and/or Sycamore Springs Middle School may request that incoming fifth- and/or eighth-grade students remain at their current campus for the 2017-18 school year only. In addition, the Board of Trustees approved a plan that allows siblings of grandfathered fifth- and eighth-graders to also remain at their current campus for one year (so that families are not separated). However, the district will NOT provide transportation to students who are grandfathered to their previously assigned campus. Starting with the 2018-19 school year, all elementary and middle school students will be required to attend the campus to which they are zoned.

    Families who wish to participate in the grandfathering option must submit a separate Transfer Application Form for each student for the 2017-18 school year. The deadline for submitting applications was March 31, 2017.
