Frozen Schools

Each year, Austin ISD determines which schools (K-12) should be frozen to transfers because they have, or are expected to have, enrollments that exceed their capacities. Also, some schools are frozen to maintain stability in tracking patterns.

Schools Frozen to Transfers in 2018–19:

  • High schools: Akins, Bowie and McCallum
  • Middle schools: Lamar and Murchison
  • Elementary schools: Baldwin, Baranoff, Becker (PK–2)*, Blazier, Brentwood, Bryker Woods, Casis, Cowan, Davis, Doss, Gullett, Hill, Kiker, Lee (K–5)**, Maplewood, Mathews, Menchaca, Oak Hill, Reilly (PK–2)*, Ridgetop, Summitt, Sunset Valley (PK–2)* and Zilker.
    *These grades will accept dual language applications.
