Lone Oak ISD maintains a transfer policy under FDA (Local) requiring non-resident students wishing to transfer to file a transfer application each school year. The following items are considered when evaluating any request:
- Availability of space and instructional staff
- Availability of programs and services
- The student’s disciplinary history records, work habits, and attendance records
Transfer students are expected to follow the attendance requirements, rules and regulations of the District.
Electronic submissions are now accepted. Directions can be found below for both iPhone users and Android users to utilize your phone to scan documents if you do not have access to a scanner. Please ensure all documents uploaded are clear and legible.

State and Local Guidelines
TEC 25.036 has been interpreted to establish the acceptance of a transfer as a one-year commitment by the District. The District is seeking to eliminate the provision of a one-year commitment in accepting transfer applicants. On rare occasions, student behavior warrants suspension (in or out of school), placement in a disciplinary alternative program, or expulsion. In addition, student attendance may fall below the TEA truancy standard. In these rare cases, Lone Oak ISD seeks exemption from the one-year transfer commitment.
Non-resident students who have been accepted as inter-district transfer may have such transfer status revoked by the Superintendent at any time during the year if the student is assigned discipline consequences of suspension (in or out of school), placement in a disciplinary alternative program, or expulsion. In addition, students not meeting the State’s 90% attendance standard may also be subject to immediate revocation of the transfer status.
