The 2009 Georgia General Assembly approved House Bill 251 (HB251), giving parents/guardians the option to request that their children attend any school within the school district based on space availability. School districts determine available classroom space after all assigned students have been enrolled.
By law, all parents who transfer students under HB 251 are required to assume all costs and responsibilities for transportation to and from school as long as the child remains at that school. Peach County School System transportation is not available.
Elementary and middle school classroom space is grade specific and the availability of slots will not be finalized until the tenth day of school. All students will begin the school year at their zoned school. This timeline allows for more accurate enrollment numbers based on new students zoned for the school.
Applications will be available beginning July 3 and will close on July 17. Applications will be considered on a first come basis. Families who request a transfer will be notified of approval or denial by August 18 using the email provided in the application
All students will begin school at their zoned school and, if approved under HB 251, will be eligible to transfer upon approval notification.
