Austin ISD welcomes students from outside its boundaries to any program with available space, which is a majority of campuses. For the 2021–22 school year, out-of-district transfer requests will be accepted beginning Feb. 1, 2021. Out-of-district transfers are not allowed for the district's magnet or special programs (e.g., Lively, Kealing, Lamar, LASA or McCallum), nor will transfer requests be granted to frozen schools.
Applicants who are approved to attend a magnet or performance-based application program at Lively, 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.
