1. A residence change to another high school attendance zone for a high school student who has completed six (6) or more semesters at his/her original high school campus. In this case, the student may remain with his/her class.

2. A residence change to another LCISD school attendance zone after the beginning of the semester (generally 7 weeks or greater). 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.

3. A pending residence change to another LCISD school attendance zone because of the pending purchase or lease of a new home at the beginning of a semester (generally 6 weeks or less). 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.
