What is the difference between the Choice Programs and Transfers?

  • Choice Programs are for current residents of SBISD and require a lottery for admission.

    • Choice Programs include Elementary Dual Language, Secondary Dual Language and Charter.
    • Out-of-District applications are not eligible and will not be processed (with the exception of current, full-time employees who live outside the district).
  • Transfer applications to non-Choice schools are available to Spring Branch ISD full-time employees, Spring Branch ISD residents and non-residents.

    • Current residents of SBISD who would like the opportunity to attend a non-Choice SBISD school, other than their zoned school, are eligible. In addition, families not currently residing in SBISD (not zoned to an SBISD school) and would like the opportunity to attend an SBISD school are eligible.
    • Acceptance is based on the number of available openings, by grade level.
