AISD announces schools frozen to transfers

Friday, December 13, 2019 by Tai Moses

Every year, Austin ISD selects a number of schools that will be frozen to transfers, i.e., not accepting students transferring from other schools. The district chooses these schools based on “enrollments that exceed capacity, construction and programming, such as dual language campuses,” according to an AISD news release. The schools that will be frozen to transfers for the 2020-21 school year are Akins Early College High School and Navarro ECHS; Austin, Bowie and McCallum high schools; Gorzycki, Lively, Lamar and Murchison middle schools; and Baldwin, Baranoff, Becker (except dual language), Blazier, Brentwood, Casis, Cowan, Doss, Gullett (except kindergarten), Hill, Kiker, Lee (except kindergarten), Maplewood, Mathews (except kindergarten), Menchaca, Oak Hill, Reilly (except dual language through fourth grade), Ridgetop (except dual language), Summitt (except dual language), Sunset Valley (except dual language through fourth grade) and Zilker (except kindergarten).
