My child is in the Dual Language program... do I need to ask for a transfer each year?
If your child is an English language learner and has been placed at an elementary campus by the LPAC committee to receive dual language as a service, that is NOT considered a transfer. Your child will attend the middle school zoned for your address, not the feeder middle school for this elementary campus. If you would like your child to attend a specific middle school not zoned for your address, you will need to request a transfer during an open window in your child's 5th grade year.
If your child is a Spanish language learner and asked for a voluntary transfer to a different elementary school to participate in the Dual Language program to learn Spanish, this IS considered a transfer. Under recent changes to Board Policy FDB, this transfer is in effect for your child to remain in the transfer feeder pattern through 12th grade. Learn more https://www.lisd.net/Page/23181.
