Student Transfer Process

Public School Choice Framework

  

School Board Policy JBCA

Clayton County Public Schools provides limited opportunities for Clayton County students to attend schools outside the attendance zone in which they live. These opportunities result from a student’s attendance at a magnet school, charter school, Employee assignment, Georgia Special Needs Scholarship, School Choice, or extreme Hardship. Transportation is not provided for any of the student transfers. Students must be enrolled in Clayton County Public Schools in order to complete a student transfer application.

Parents/guardians will be notified regarding the approval of school choice transfer requests by July 15 each year. (O.C.G.A. § 20-2-2131). School choice transfers do not apply to charter schools, magnet schools, Pre-K programs, or schools at or above capacity.

Applications for HB251, SB10, Hardship and Employee Transfer will be accepted April 29, 2019 – June 7, 2019

(These are the only dates applications will be accepted for the 19-20 school year)

 Request for Kindergarten student transfers will occur July 22 – August 9, 2019; Kindergarten Approvals will be mailed on August 14, 2018

Employee Transfer request must be completed in RapidIdenty

There are several types of Student Transfers available for your consideration. Please take the time to review each section to determine which request(s) meet your needs. Criteria for each transfer request are different.

You will need to know your student's Clayton County Public School's identification number before applying. 

Once your application is submitted, you will no longer have access to change or add any information. You will receive a confirmation number for reference purposes only. This number does not in any way indicate a decision of approval or denial.

For your convenience, we have provided a list of locations the school system will make computers and scanners available to the community to assist with this application process.
