Each year, Cy-Fair ISD administration recommends certain campuses be open for voluntary student transfers based on enrollment and capacity and each campus in the district. The board of trustees unanimously approved at the March 5 meeting 36 campuses for the 2020-21 academic year, down from 38 campuses in 2019-20.

Director of General Administration Kristi Giron said criteria for the designation is based on enrollment projections and building capacities. Campuses with less than 95% capacity were identified for voluntary student transfers.

At the March 2 board work session, Giron said the goal of the process was to provide CFISD students and parents as many options as possible. This includes five high schools, five middle schools and 26 elementary schools.

Open campus transfers will be available beginning Wednesday, April 1, and the process will close on Monday, June 1, according to the district. Applications will be available in the registrar’s office on all campuses and at www.cfisd.net.

Families who take advantage of these transfers will be responsible for their own transportation.
