• Transfer Appeal Process


    If you have requested a transfer that has been denied, you may appeal that decision by submitting the Transfer Decision Appeal Form. The appeal will be reviewed and you will receive a response by mail or email. The form should include all information you would like to be considered and additional pages or documentation may also be submitted. A decision will usually be made within 10 school days.

    It is our goal to approve as many transfers as possible for students who meet the transfer guidelines.  However, space at all campuses is limited by state class size limits, staffing, and building capacity.

    • If your transfer to an elementary campus was denied due to space/capacity, an appeal IS NOT PERMITTED and will not be accepted.
    • If your transfer to a secondary campus was denied due to space/capacity, you may appeal, but it is highly unlikely that this decision would be changed upon appeal.
    • If your transfer was denied solely due to failure to provide required documents, do NOT submit an appeal.  Please send the required documents for review to duncanja@lisd.net.

    The form must be received within 15 school days of the date on the transfer denial decision email.  Transfer appeals may be sent via email to LISDtransfers@lisd.net (preferred) or dropped off in person at 1565-C W. Main Street, Lewisville, TX at the Welcome Center entrance.
