  HB 251 Public School Choice for 2016-2017

Under State Law – House Bill 251, parents or guardians may request to have their child transferred to another public school within the school district of residence, as long as the school district has determined that there is available classroom space at the school after all assigned students have been enrolled. In order to process the Public School Choice request, parents or guardians must complete and submit a “Transfer Request Form.” The transfer request form and a complete list of school choice options are listed below. Requests for transfers will not be accepted after 4:00pm on Friday, April 22, 2016.

If a parent or guardian chooses to transfer their child to another school in the district, the law requires the parent or legal guardian to assume all costs and responsibilities related to the transportation of the child to and from the school, as long as the child remains at that school. In the event a particular school has available space and the amount of transfer requests exceed the remaining available capacity, transfer requests will be reviewed and approved or denied on the basis of a lottery. Once available capacity is reached at a school, no more transfers will be approved to that school.

Copies of the school choice list and transfer request forms will be available at the District’s Central Office (208 Bull Street), Housing Authority of Savannah, and at the Live Oak Public Libraries. For further questions regarding House Bill 251, please contact Dr. Quentina Miller-Fields, Director of Student Affairs at 912-395-5584.
