Enrollment and Transfers for 2020-2021 School Year

Enrollment for new students entering LISD for the 2020-2021 school year opens Tuesday, Jan. 21. 


LISD accepts requests for in-district and some out-of-district transfers to a school of choice during the designated transfer windows listed below. As a reminder, if your child already has an approved IN-district transfer, that transfer is now good through 12th grade in the transfer feeder pattern, and you do not need to submit a new request to remain on that school path. If your child has an OUT-of-district transfer, you must request a new transfer each school year.  

Priority Kindergarten Transfer Window | Jan. 21 - Feb. 7
During this transfer window, families who wish to transfer their incoming kindergartner to a campus of choice for the 2020-2021 school year are encouraged to request a transfer during this window (Jan. 21 - Feb. 7). 

General Spring Transfer Window | Jan. 21 - Feb. 21
During this transfer window, any current or future student may submit a transfer request for the 2020-2021 school year to a campus of choice in the district.

How to Submit a Transfer Request
1. If your child currently attends a school in the district, beginning Jan. 21, a transfer request form will be available in your Skyward Family Access account through Feb. 21. 

2. If your child will be new to LISD, beginning Jan. 21, you will be able to access an optional transfer request form for the 2020-2021 school year in the new student online enrollment forms HERE

Learn more about transfer guidelines, transfer feeder patterns and which campuses have space available to accept transfers HERE or contact LISD’s Community Services department at 469-713-5206 or

Families of returning students to the district will have an opportunity to update their back-to-school forms during the summer and will receive a reminder email from the district this summer to update their information for the next school year. Current students should not complete new student enrollment forms.

We look forward to serving your child and your family in the upcoming school year!
