Voluntary Transfer Program
For students who wish to attend De Soto High School or Lexington Trails Middle School only
The Board of Education established this voluntary transfer program as a way to help balance enrollment by encouraging transfers to De Soto High School and Lexington Trails Middle School. The program is for USD 232 students who reside within the boundaries of other USD 232 schools. Placement determined on number of requests received and on a space-available basis.
This process is now OPEN for the 2019-20 school year. > Online request form
Voluntary Transfers to DHS or LTMS will be accepted through March 18. Voluntary transfer requests received AFTER MARCH 18 are not guaranteed for approval as the district plans for staffing patterns, class sizes, etc., and will follow the same process as general transfer requests.
Students approved to transfer to DHS or LTMS will be offered free bus transportation. Bus service is available on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis. Routes are developed and planned around those who have registered during the open registration period for bus transportation. The district, in collaboration with First Student (transportation provider), works to keep bus ride times for students at a reasonable level. It is our desire to shorten ride times balanced with our objective to be as efficient as possible with transportation costs and resources.
