DeKalb County Schools Out-of-District Request
Out-of-district enrollment assignments are reviewed annually and changes made in accordance with prevailing conditions.  See board policy page 26 of the Student Handbook "If a transfer is granted the parent/legal guardian must apply in writing each year to the school administration to continue attending out of his/her school zone."
Please know that we care very much about your child and will always consider his/her best interest before making any transfer recommendation. All out-of-district requests must be submitted by June 15th for the next academic school year.
Please note that parents will be responsible for transportation.

  • Please use the information provided in this chart for guidance in making decisions regarding COVID-19. This information does allow individuals affected to return from isolation after 5 days if they are symptom free and willing to wear a mask for 5 additional days. 

    If the individual is not willing to mask, the isolation duration is 10 days. Students should continue doing assignments while isolating to the best of their ability. 

    Please notify your child’s school if they are positive or have been exposed and need to isolate.
