Student Transfer Requests for the 2020 – 2021 School Year
There will be no changes to school attendance areas for the 2020 - 2021 school year. Students are required to attend the school for which they are zoned, based on their parent/legal guardian’s residence, as defined in NCSD administrative rule 5.01. If assignment out of the assigned attendance area is desired, a “Student Request for In-County Transfer” form must be completed. The request must be approved by the receiving principal, releasing principal, and school board. This form may be obtained from any NCSD school or from the district website.
Every effort is made to accommodate in-county transfer requests. However, growth across the county has limited the district’s ability to honor all requests. Several schools are at full capacity and first consideration must be given to students residing in those attendance areas.
The district’s plan for processing in-county transfer requests for the 2020 – 2021 school year will be as follows. Students who were approved for an in-county transfer for the 2019 - 2020 school year and will be in the same grade band (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12) next year, do not need to submit an application. However, students that will be moving up a grade band for the 2020 – 2021 school year must submit applications and be approved. (For example, if a 2nd grade student is attending a primary school on an in-county transfer, but is moving up to 3rd grade next year and would like to attend the elementary school located in the same attendance area, the in-county transfer request must be completed. Approvals will depend on available capacity.) Students in K-5 schools (Bryceville Elementary, Hilliard Elementary, and Wildlight Elementary) who were approved for the 2019-2020 school year do not need to reapply, unless they will be moving up to middle school in 2020-2021 and wish to attend a middle school out of their assigned attendance area.
