Lake Dallas ISD is accepting open enrollment transfers for resident and non-resident students.
Transfers are considered on a case-by-case basis and require district approval. Criteria for approval includes academic history, discipline, attendance and passing all sections of the most recent STAAR or other recognized test if STAAR is not available (kindergarten, second grade, private schools, parochial schools or home schools).
LDISD will accept applications for grade levels K-12th based on campus capacity. The number of openings for transfer students is limited. Transfer applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. There will not be a tuition fee for out-of-district students for the current school year; however, this waiver will be reviewed in successive years.
Completed applications will be accepted through May 31. The applications will then be reviewed by an administrator in the office of Instructional Services and by the campus Principal to determine final placement. Parents will be notified electronically of the status of the application.
Once the application has been approved by both the campus principal and instructional services, the parent should make a copy of the approval and call the individual campus to make arrangements for registration.
All students who are outside the campus attendance boundaries must reapply and qualify annually. Any student may be denied annually based on behavior, excessive tardies, late pick-up or attendance. If a K-5 application is denied based on campus/program capacity, the office of Instructional Services will assist the parent with options in choosing a campus that has available capacity.
