Our Open Enrollment out-of-district transfer program at selected campuses makes Garland ISD's exceptional education and opportunities available to students who reside outside the district’s attendance boundaries. Students who will attend prekindergarten through grade 12 in the upcoming school year are invited to apply for this tuition-free program.
