Early Fall Transfer Window Open

LISD families can request enrollment at another school for the 2023-24 school year during this window.

LISD Families,

Lewisville ISD allows families to request enrollment at a school other than the one zoned for their address during specific time frames throughout the school year. The Early Fall Transfer Window for the 2023-2024 school year is now open. School-to-school transfers are not allowed during the current school year. 

During this early window, requests may only be made by current LISD students in grades K-11. If you have students in these grades, the transfer request form will be available in your Skyward Family Access account now through Dec. 2 under “Online Forms”. The Early Fall Transfer Window is the best time to make a request for next year while we have the greatest flexibility with space at campuses. An early request also ensures access to correct 2023-2024 course registration materials in the spring for middle and high school students.

Who should submit a transfer request?
Transfers are OPTIONAL and only necessary for students to attend a different school than the one zoned for their address. If you are not sure what schools are zoned for your address, access our school locator.

What if my child already has a transfer?
If your child is attending their current school on an out-of-district transfer, meaning you live outside the boundaries of LISD, you must request a transfer each school year. This early window is the best opportunity to make that request.

If your child is attending their current school on an in-district transfer, meaning you live within the boundaries of LISD, you do NOT need to submit a new request for continued attendance at that school and in the transfer feeder pattern. In-district transfers are approved for a student through 12th grade. In-district students on a transfer will automatically continue enrollment at their current school and move to the next feeder school at the transition grades. If you wish to transfer to a different school/feeder pattern for next year, a transfer request must be submitted during an open transfer window. If you wish to cancel your transfer and return to your zoned school/feeder pattern for the next school year, contact us at (469) 713-5206 or lisdtransfers@lisd.net

Additional transfer opportunities for the 2023-2024 school year:
A General Spring Transfer Window will be open from Jan. 25 to Feb. 17, 2023. Any current LISD student who will be in grades K-12 for the 2023-24 school year may apply in this window. This is also the first opportunity for new students to apply as well as any incoming kindergarten students.
