4. Out of District Transfer applications are valid for one school year.  A new application must be submitted each school year.  

5. Parent/guardian will be notified by USPS mail as soon as the application has been processed and a decision has been made regarding approval or denial. 

Applications submitted prior to the first day of school will be processed and notification sent by USPS mail during the summer.  It may be after the first week of school for Kindergartners to be notified, depending on space availability.  Applications received once the school year has started will be placed in the mail within 10 days of receipt.  The first day of school is August 17, 2022.  


Parent/guardian is responsible for transportation to and from school. Bus privileges are not available, including in-district addresses.


All rules regarding student eligibility for UIL competitions will be followed. Approval of an Out of District transfer does not verify UIL eligibility. Students who participate in UIL athletics must verify eligibility through the District Athletic Director.

Revoking Transfer

Transfer students must follow all Pine Tree ISD rules and regulations, including but not limited to District policies and regulations, the Student Code of Conduct, and attendance requirements. Transfer students may have their enrollment revoked if the student does not adhere to all policies and regulations based on poor attendance, excessive tardiness, or inappropriate student behavior or parent behavior.  

Please reference School Board Policy FDA(local) regarding specific guidelines for student transfers. For further inquiries, please contact the superintendent’s office at 903-295-5000.
