In limited circumstances, Fayette County students may ask to attend a school other than the main one serving their neighborhood. The allowable reasons are listed in the online application; approval is not guaranteed.
Because of capacity concerns, elementary students are encouraged to attend their assigned school. The criteria for requesting a change are limited. Priorities include children of school-level employees, walkers living within one mile, fifth-graders desiring to finish at their same school, siblings, and students anticipating a family move before Oct. 31.
There are no changes to the middle and high school procedure. Potential exceptions are noted on the application, and students will only be approved to attend alternate schools if space is available.
(The only allowable reason for any more 2013-2014 requests is if your family has moved and you want your child to finish the school year at his current school.)
An out-of-area agreement will be attached to each finish-the-current-year letter; it must be signed and returned to the school. Note: All students approved for out-of-area placements must provide their own transportation.
Our district strives to provide a world-class education for our students, and we pride ourselves in doing what is best for all youngsters. Thank you for the privilege of serving your family.
