MS Intent Form (Wellington ES only)
All current Spanish Immersion 5th grade students at Wellington are able to attend Forestwood MS for advanced Spanish courses. For students who live INSIDE the boundaries of LISD, this process is handled internally without the need for parents to complete additional paperwork.
Your plans to continue to the MS Advanced Spanish Language Program are communicated through the MS Intent Form.
MS Pathway (Hicks ES only)
Hicks students are automatically slated for Arbor Creek MS where there is already an Advanced Spanish Language program in place, so there is no need to indicate intent for MS plans.
If you have other plans for middle school, please let us know of your situation, and we are happy to help navigate your next steps.
Out-of-district families (i.e. out-of-district LISD employees, etc.) will still need to complete transfer paperwork during the timeline set by Student Services.
Transfers for the Middle School Advanced Spanish Language Program
After recent changes, LISD Board policy FDB (LOCAL) now allows students who live inside the boundaries of LISD to request an in-district transfer that will allow the student to remain in that transfer feeder pattern through graduation, WITHOUT asking for additional transfers in subsequent years. For example, if you receive an approved transfer in kindergarten to attend Timber Creek ES, that transfer is in place through Lamar MS, Marcus 9th, and Marcus High School.
Students who were already attending on an approved in-district transfer will be automatically moved to the feeder pattern transfer.
- For example, if you are on an in-district transfer to attend Wellington ES, you would automatically be moved to McKamy MS.
- If you are on an in-district transfer, and do not wish to continue to the feeder pattern middle school, you will need to cancel the transfer to return to your originally zoned path for MS You can view the transfer feeder patterns HERE.
Under state law and Board policy, students who live outside the boundaries of LISD, including the children of district employees, must request a transfer each school year.
