Transfers into AISD from Other Districts

A nonresident student (student who lives outside the Amarillo I.S.D. boundaries) who wants to attend school in A.I.S.D. 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 A.I.S.D. is the responsibility of the parents or guardian.

Annual Application

The transfer request form is available at the link below or at any A.I.S.D. campus. 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 May 1 for the next school year.  Transfer applications submitted after May 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 A.I.S.D. 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.
