Out-of-District Transfer Requests

  • Applications are effective for one school year only and must be re-submitted each year. 
  • Transportation to and from campus is the applicant's responsibility.
  • Transfers may be denied if there is insufficient space in the appropriate grade-level or it would require the hiring of additional personnel.


Applications for the upcoming school year are accepted through June 28th.  After June 28th, applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis based on class size and staffing availability.

 

 

  • Prior to attending a school in Lago Vista ISD, a new student must be enrolled.  A new student is one who has never attended a school in Lago Vista ISD, or is a previous Lago Vista ISD student who withdrew prior to the last day of school in the previous school year. To enroll in Lago Vista ISD, a student must reside within the school district boundaries or be accepted as an out-of-district transfer student.  Parents enrolling a new student must complete the following steps:

    Step 1: Enroll Your New Student at the Campus

    All students entering Lago Vista ISD must visit the campus of enrollment to begin the enrollment process.  There, you will provide the District with important student information and the required documentation for enrollment. Before student enrollment and registration paperwork will be processed, all students entering Lago Vista ISD must bring the following documents to the campus:

    • New Student Information Form
    • Up-to-Date Immunization Records (See below for requirements.)
    • Birth Certificate
    • Social Security Cards (A state ID may also be used.)
    • Proof of Residency
    • Last Report Card or Transcript of Grades
    • State Testing Results, if available (TAKS/STAAR)
    • Accompanying Parent or Guardian with a Photo ID
    • Custodial Paperwork (Required, if applicable.)
    Residence Verification Affidavit

    During this initial enrollment visit, you will be asked to complete a New Student Enrollment Form Packet.  Completed and signed enrollment forms are required for each student upon enrollment. Typically, these are only collected once, unless a student withdraws and re-enrolls in a subsequent year. 

    Step 2: Enroll Your New Student Through Ascender Parent Portal

    All students Lago Vista ISD utilizes a web portal, Ascender Parent Portal, which allows parents and students to view grades and attendance records, as well as update contact information online. The information provided in Parent Portal is what the school uses to contact parents, so it is very important that all information provided in Parent Portal is correct and up-to-date. After completing Step 1 and prior to the first day of school, parents enrolling a new student in the District will create a Parent Portal account and submit enrollment information to the District electronically. Parents enrolling multiple new students will create only one account and submit enrollment information for each student using that account. 

    To begin, please visit the Lago Vista ISD Parent Portal siteNote: During your account creation, you will be asked to verify your email address. This is an important step and failure to verify your email address will disable your account.   Please follow the instructions carefully to ensure continued access to your account. 

    Once your student's enrollment is processed, you will need a Student Portal ID (a unique code separate from your child's Student ID) from the campus and the student's birthdate in order to link to the student's information. Student Portal IDs are distributed by the campus at the beginning of the school year. If you have multiple students, you will enter the Student Portal ID for each student into your account. 

    Step 3: Complete Annual Student Registration Process

    Each year, parents of existing and newly enrolled Lago Vista ISD students must complete the annual registration process.  Registration forms provide the District with official documentation of important permissions, acknowledgments, and information required by the State to qualify students for services. Annual registration form packets are sent home at the beginning of school. Completed and signed registration forms are required for each student, each year.

  • Please note that a "returning student" is a student who was enrolled in Lago Vista ISD on the last day of school in the previous school year. If a student attended Lago Vista ISD in the previous school year, but withdrew prior to the last day of school, he/she must re-enroll as a new student using the instructions above.  Each year, parents of returning students must complete the following steps: 

    Step 1: Verify/Update Your Information in Ascender Parent Portal

    Parents of currently enrolled students are asked to log into their Lago Vista ISD Ascender Parent Portal account to verify/update student information at the beginning of each school year. Parents can update addresses, parent/guardian information, and emergency contact information throughout the year if there is a change.  After you submit the updated information, your campus registrar will receive the request and process it accordingly. If there are any questions about the changes submitted, the campus will contact you directly.

    Have a Disabled Parent Portal Account?
    If your Lago Vista ISD Ascender Parent Portal account is disabled and attempts to create a new account provide an error that your email address is already being used by another user, please send an email from the address of the disabled account to registration@lagovista.txed.net to have the account removed. This will allow you to create a new user account using that same email address.  Once your new account is created, you will need a Student Portal ID (a unique code separate from your child's Student ID) from the campus and the student's birthdate in order to link to the student's information.  Note: Please understand that requests for assistance with disabled accounts may take longer to process during peak times of the year.

    Step 2: Complete Annual Student Registration Process

    Student registration forms are collected for all enrolled students each year. Registration forms provide the District with official documentation of important permissions, acknowledgments, and information required by the State to qualify students for services.  Annual registration form packets are sent home at the beginning of school. Completed and signed registration forms are required for each student, each year.
