Transfers & Schools of Choice
  • Are You Looking to Attend a School Outside of Your Zoned Campus?

    Good News! Schools of Choice in BISD may be the right choice for you!


    What is School Choice in BISD?

    There are many options for instruction within Beaumont ISD. The vast majority of our families choose for their students to learn in the schools zoned to their residence address. School choice allows families to access learning experiences for their students that are beyond their 'zoned' campus. All families who live within the geographic boundaries of Jefferson County are eligible to apply for enrollment in one of BISD's four (4) Schools of Choice. 

    • Fehl-Price Classical Academy (Grades K-5)
    • PLA @ Jones-Clark Elementary School (Grades K-5)
    • PLA @ Smith Middle School (Grades 6-8)
    • King Middle School - Green Dot (Grades 6-8)

    Who can enroll at a School of Choice? 

    • School choice is available as an open enrollment opportunity for any student in BISD who is not already zoned to the choice campus as well as to any student who lives within the geographic boundaries of Jefferson County. 
    • School choice enrollment is generally accepted year round, although open enrollment windows of opportunity may also be announced at designated times.

    What if the school I want my child to transfer to/attend is not listed?

    All BISD schools offer great learning opportunities! Unfortunately, not all BISD schools have specialized education programs, are designated as open enrollment Schools of Choice or have the capacity to accept transfer students.  Per board policy FDB(Local),  a student shall be assigned to a school in the attendance area in which he or she resides on the basis of the actual residence of his or her parent or legal guardian upon submission of proof of residency provided at the time of enrollment consistent with board policy. Student may apply to attend a school outside of their zoned campus via open enrollment to schools with seats available. 

    Currently, the following BISD Schools of Choice have space to accept transfers and open enrollment students. 

    • Fehl-Price Classical Academy (Grades K-5)
    • PLA @ Jones-Clark Elementary School (Grades K-5)
    • PLA @ Smith Middle School (Grades 6-8)
    • King Middle School - Green Dot (Grades 6-8)

    Is there a way that all my children can attend the same campus together?

    Yes. Depending on age, grade level and/or special programs offered, selecting enrollment to one of the Schools of Choice is a great way for siblings to have the opportunity to attend school together. Learn more about the school choice campuses below.


    Will transportation be provided for BISD Schools of Choice transfers?

    No. There is no transportation provided for students who choose to transfer or participate in open enrollment at a School of Choice. Students who are zoned to attend a School of Choice receive transportation in accordance with board policy.
