According to the Clayton County Public Schools Board Policy JBCD, The Board of Education will not furnish transportation for any student granted a transfer to attend school outside his/her attendance area. The parent shall assume responsibility and cost of transportation of the student to and from the school. All students/parents must maintain acceptable grades, attendance, behavior and a cooperative /productive relationship in order for the transfer to remain valid. If these conditions are not met, the transfer may be denied or revoked at any time.

Students accepting a transfer may lose their Georgia High School Association eligibilty http://www.ghsa.net/student-and-eligibility-information. Please check with the school about such matters before enrolling your child.
