I did this recently- there is a form for an "Inter-disctrict transfer" that you should be able to find on the ISD's website. If it is not there, call them and ask for one. This to my understanding just needs to be signed and given to the new school and your enrollment should carry over. I live in Carrollton so I am not clear if Dallas ISD has the same ability.

I would talk to the principal of the school where you are interested in putting your kids.
Before transfers were almost it can be possible in some schools.

Every school district has different rules. I would suggest contacting both the school district AND the particular school that you are interested in and see what their response is. If I remember correctly Plano ISD allows something like this.

Hi Sherry,

The best way is to contact the specific school regarding the trasfer and make sure your place is zoned for the school you want otherwise there wont be much the school can do .

Transfer rules can vary from one district to another.
As Don indicated, you should first contact the current school district regarding transfer requirements, and subsequently the district you desire for your children.

Your school is pretty much dictated by the location of your property. I would contact the school district directly to see if you have any options in that regard.
