A nonresident student (student who lives outside the Amarillo ISD boundaries) who wants to attend school in AISD can also apply for a transfer. This is called an interdistrict transfer. Interdistrict transfer requests are considered if there is still space available at a school after all intradistrict transfer requests have been considered.
Transportation for students who are granted a transfer into AISD is the responsibility of the parents or guardian.
The transfer request form is available at the link below. Like intradistrict transfers, interdistrict transfers are good for only one year. A student on an interdistrict transfer must reapply for the transfer each year.
Transfer request forms are due to the principal of the desired school by June 1 for the next school year. Transfer applications submitted after June 1 will be considered after the original group of applications.
Ordinarily, nonresident students pay a tuition fee to transfer into another district. However, transfer students may request a tuition waiver. Current practice in AISD is to waive tuition for out-of-district transfers.
For more information about interdistrict transfers, refer to Board Policy FDA (LOCAL) (Page opens in a new window), or contact your campus principal.
