FSH ISD and RFISD both accept transfer waiver applications in grades K-12, Lackland ISD only accepts transfer applications for grades 9-12.
Fort Sam Houston ISD, Lackland ISD or Randolph Field ISD are not part of the Department of Defense school system, they are independent school districts subject to the jurisdiction of the Texas Education Agency. As the district's boundaries are coterminous with those of JBSA-FSH, JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Randolph, the facilities of which by law are exempt from property taxation, the district has no taxable base; thus, funding is provided from Department of Education Impact Aid funds and state public school foundation funding.
There are 23 Independent School Districts that service military families around JBSA. For further information regarding Texas Schools and their accountability, testing or ratings, please visit the Texas Education Agency.
Please contact the School Liaison Office prior to leaving your current installation to receive our welcome packet with valuable information and resources to make your move to JBSA smooth. To contact any of the JBSA School Liaison locations, please email Lackland.email@example.com
