All students in Lubbock ISD are assured admission to the schools in the attendance area in which they reside. Students may apply online for a transfer from one school to another within Lubbock ISD. This is referred to as an intradistrict transfer (in-district). A non-resident student living outside the Lubbock ISD boundaries that desires to attend school in the district may apply online for a transfer to a school found on the “open to transfer” list during the transfer application window. This type of transfer is referred to as an interdistrict transfer (out of district). After reviewing enrollment projections and the capacity of our campuses (physical space and staffing), a list of schools open to this type of transfer is established. All transfer applications will be approved and or denied due to existing criteria established by the Lubbock Independent School District.

Pre-K:  Pre-K transfer applications will begin on April 4, 2024. For more information, contact the Early Childhood department at (806) 219-0340. 

Deadline: Online transfer applications are due January 19, 2024, by 4:30 p.m. for the 2024-2025 school year. 

Transportation:  It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to provide transportation for the student for which a transfer into Lubbock ISD has been granted. 

For more information about interdistrict transfers, refer to Board Policy FDA (LOCAL), or contact the Lubbock ISD district office of Student Support.
