LISD Out-of-District Transfer Application

PARENTS: PLEASE READ

We believe that children attending the Longview Independent School District.have the advantage of outstanding facilities, quality teachers, great support, and the opportunity to obtain an excellent education while enjoying the many sports and extracurricular activities afforded our students. If you agree, please help us spread the word.

In order to complete the application, you will need to know your student’s LISD identification number. If you have a child that you want to transfer who has never been enrolled in LISD and therefore does not have an LISD identification number, then you will need to enter 77777.

Please read the Longview Independent School District Transfer Policy. Parents must acknowledge and agree to the terms of the policy in order to complete the application.
