Magnet & Special Programs 

Students wishing to attend a magnet program at Fulmore, Kealing or LASA or an application program such as Anderson IB or Academies at Austin; Crockett Entrepreneurial Program; Crockett, Eastside, Lanier, LBJ, Reagan or Travis Early College High Schools; Covington, Lamar or McCallum Fine Arts; Bedichek Einstein Jr.; Innovation Academy at Martin; Small Green Tech; Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders or a Dual Language program must apply directly to those programs. Learn more about applying to magnet and special programs.

Applicants who are approved to attend a magnet or performance-based application program at Fulmore, Kealing, Lamar, LASA or McCallum must show proof of residence within AISD boundaries by the application due date. This proof may include documentation indicating that the student's family will occupy a residence that has been purchased or leased within 45 calendar days of the application due date.

Principals of these programs may request proof of residence at any time.

Residence within AISD boundaries must be maintained to remain in a magnet program. If a student moves out of AISD while attending a magnet or performance program, he/she will be allowed to finish the semester in the magnet program. In the case of a graduating senior, he/she may finish the year in the magnet program.

General Transfer

General transfers may be requested when the student does not qualify for one of the other types of transfers and shall be approved contingent on available space.

Approval/Denial Process

Initial processing of general transfer requests will be determined by lottery, and approval or denial letters will be sent to parents. When a request is denied, an appeal may be made to the associate superintendent who has the responsibility for the requested school. A final appeal may be made to the superintendent, and, if needed, a petition may be made to the Board of Trustees, in accordance with state law.
