At a March 3 meeting, Plano ISD trustees updated district policies governing student transfers within the district and across districts.

As part of the changes, a student who moves out of the district after the school year begins will be allowed to continue to attend PISD for the remainder of the school year and be allowed to remain enrolled in an academy program for that year.

If a student is no longer a resident at the start of the school year, they will not be able to continue attending school at PISD.

Trustees also approved a policy update that will allow for the district to revoke a transfer into PISD mid-year, but only if there is existing space and staff for the student in the student’s grade level at the student’s zoned campus, the policy states.

Reasons for revoked transfers can range from attendance issues to disciplinary issues, said Susan Modisette, assistant superintendent for Student and Family Support Services.

These policy adjustments were passed unanimously by the board.

Editor's note: Language about student residence at the start of the school year has been clarified.
