Parents/Guardians of students requesting a transfer assignment are required to annually submit an application for transfer of school assignment for each child in order for the transfer assignment to be considered for renewal. This annual assignment request is reviewed by the Board of Education with regard to the following criteria:

•the school requested has sufficient population space for the student assignment;
•the student has maintained an acceptable record of attendance; and,
•the student has maintained an acceptable record of behavior.

Parents/Guardians wishing to transfer a child to a school outside his/her regular attendance area must make such request in writing by June 30 for the upcoming school year. Parents/Guardians may pick up a Transfer Request Form from the school serving the attendance area of their residence, or by contacting Meria Flecha at Chatham County Schools Administrative Office in Pittsboro. This request must be submitted to the Superintendent or his designee, who will review the facts and render a decision in the beginning of July.

The transfer request must be returned by June 30, in order for your request to be considered for the next school term. Transfer requests are not accepted after the deadline. You will be notified in writing, of the Board of Education's decision regarding your transfer request.

For a more detailed description, please see Board of Education's Transfer Policy 8210.

To address questions regarding Transfers/ School Assignments, please feel free to contact Meria Flecha at Chatham County Schools, 919-542-3626 extension 221 or via email at
