Schools Frozen to Transfers in 2021-2022

Each year, the School District determines which schools will 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.

  • High Schools: Akins, Bowie
  • Middle Schools: Gorzycki, Lamar, Lively
  • Elementary Schools: Baranoff, Cowan, Kiker

Frozen schools may still accept applications for magnet, application or dual language programs. Families should contact the school directly for more information.
