Twenty-one Fulton County Schools will accept transfer students next school year through Georgia’s Quality Basic Education Act, including one Roswell school.
Approved in 2009, the Intra-District School Choice section of the law – which Fulton County Schools calls “Open Enrollment” – allows parents of students enrolled in a public K-12 school to enroll in another school within the district if space allows. However, parents must provide their own transportation.
There are seven schools in Roswell, Alpharetta, Milton and Johns Creek included within the 21 schools.
In Fulton County, the schools available for Open Enrollment transfers are:
Birmingham Falls Elementary School
Conley Hills Elementary School
Findley Oaks Elementary School
Hapeville Elementary School
S.L. Lewis Elementary School
Medlock Bridge Elementary School
Love T. Nolan Elementary School
Renaissance Elementary School
Shakerag Elementary School
Sweet Apple Elementary School
Bear Creek Middle School
Haynes Bridge Middle School
McNair Middle School
Sandtown Middle School
Paul D. West Middle School
Banneker High School
Cambridge High School
Creekside High School
Langston Hughes High School
Tri-Cities High School
Westlake High School
Application Deadline is May 15
The application deadline is Wednesday, May 15, at 4:30 p.m., and parents will be notified of their child’s transfer status in June. A transfer application is available online. Printed forms also can be picked up from six administrative locations, including:
- Fulton County Schools Administrative Center (786 Cleveland Ave. SW, Atlanta)
- Jo Wells Center (554 Parkway Drive, Hapeville)
- Professional Learning Center South (3121 Norman Berry Drive, East Point)
- The Meadows Operations Center (5270 Northfield Boulevard, College Park)
Received applications will be assigned a lottery ID number which will be used to randomly select approvals for transfers should the number of applicants surpass the number of available seats at each schools. If students are not chosen for their first choice of transfer, the application will be considered for the secondary choice(s).
