In this case the student may remain at his/her current campus until the end of the current semester. Proof of current address will be required to confirm the student's new address is within the District's boundaries.

In this case, the student may transfer to the campus of his/her new attendance zone. Documentation indicating an earnest contract, lender approval, closing documents, and/or a signed lease is required as proof of residence.

4. Full time LCISD employees that are residents of the District may transfer their student to another campus within the District. Transfers that are granted to resident full-time employees must be renewed annually. If the employee terminates employment with the District, the student will return to the campus for which he/she is zoned at the end of the semester in which employment ends.

Conditions for an approved transfer/Reasons for Revocation or Non-Approval:

  • The District shall not provide transportation to students approved for transfers. Transportation to and from the requested campus will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
  • If the parent or guardian decides not to transfer the student to the school to which the transfer was granted, the student shall be required to attend the school assigned to his or her attendance zone.

  • The student fails to maintain satisfactory behavior, attendance, and/or academic performance.
  • The student's parent or guardian provides false and/or misleading information to district officials.
  • The requested campus is closed to transfers due to insufficient room, facilities, and/or instructional staff.
  • Any other situation that the Superintendent deems may affect the safety or security of students and/or present a potential financial hardship to the District.

If granted a transfer, the student's participation in UIL activities shall be in accordance with all applicable UIL regulations and board policies. Varsity athletic participation shall be based on UIL residency requirements in grades 8-12.
