Inter/Intra District Student Transfers

School district employees that live outside of the Cleveland ISD boundaries and wish to transfer their student into CISD and/or that live in district but work at a campus outside of their attendance zone and wish for their child to attend school where they work can complete the new digital CISD Intra/Inter District Transfer application linked below.  Employees are responsible for uploading in the application or personally submitting to the Director of Administrative Services all necessary documentation to be considered for a student transfer.  If this is a renewal and not a new request, documents are not required, as the district is able to access your student’s academic, attendance, and discipline records.

To ensure that your transfer request is processed in a timely manner, please meet all timelines, submit appropriate documentation, and apply using the new digital application.  Do not use the 2021-2022 student transfer application, as this no longer applies.

April 22, 2022 is the deadline to renew student transfers or for current employees considering a new transfer request and enrolling their student in CISD for the 2022-2023 school year.  ALL students attending CISD that are not zoned to the district or live within the district’s boundaries and attend a different campus MUST submit a transfer application.  This includes all employees who transfer within the district due to new campuses opening.

Transfer applications must be submitted annually for consideration for the following school year.

Pre-Kindergarten Program

Employees who have students who qualify for Pre-K under federal guidelines may request a transfer to enroll their student in the program should they not live within the Cleveland ISD boundaries or live within CISD and wish to bring their student to work with them rather than their zoned campus. Please visit Pre-Kindergarten Enrollment Information for a full list of eligibility requirements.

At this time, a decision regarding tuition based Pre-K for non-qualifying students of employees is still under consideration.  CISD is in the process of transitioning from half day Pre-K to full day Pre-K.  Currently, we do not know what our space availability will be once qualifying students are enrolled and do not want to have to rescind the opportunity prior to the start of school.  CISD is closely monitoring enrollment numbers and will continue to keep you informed.
