For application to be considered, the requested school must meet building capacity guidelines as outlined in the Board Policy SS-3.
General School Capacity Options Information:
Majority to Minority means Any student assigned to a school where his/her race is a majority of the student body may transfer to any school in the district where his/her race is in the minority. The district will determine the majority and minority races of each school at the time of the request.
Senior Status (Grandfather Rule) means students who complete the next to last year at the school serving their RSAA and who move into a different BCSD attendance zone after that year has completed may be allowed to complete their last year of attendance at that school. School attendance records, grades and discipline may be used in determining whether to allow a student to remain in their now out-of-zone school. This does not apply to students that move into another school district.
Siblings: Approval of a student’s transfer request does not guarantee approval will be granted for his/her sibling, either for the same academic year or for future academic years.
School Capacity Information
School Capacity Guidelines are defined in Beaufort County School District’s Board Policies, Administrative Rules and Procedures under Administration Rule SS-3, Assignment of Students to Schools (XI A-E).
Schools at their Defined Capacity
Applications for schools will be subject to each school’s defined capacity. Some schools are currently at or over their capacity and may have limited or no availability for transfers. If capacity becomes available at these schools and the number of applicants exceeds the availability, a lottery will be utilized. Factors such as the school’s forecasted grade level size and program enrollment, as well as individual applicant’s attendance, academics, and discipline records may be used in determining eligibility.
These schools are marked with “(* School at Capacity)” appearing next to the school name in the selection process.
Schools currently at capacity:
Schools Nearing their Defined Capacity
Applications for schools will be subject to each school’s defined capacity. Some schools are currently nearing their capacity and may have limited availability for transfers. If the number of applicants exceeds the availability a lottery will be utilized. Factors such as the school’s forecasted grade level size and program enrollment, as well as individual applicant’s attendance, academics, and discipline records may be used in determining eligibility.
These schools are marked with “(** School Near Capacity)” appearing next to the school name in the selection process.
Schools currently near capacity:
Each year applications for transfer will be subject to Board of Education Policy. Once approved for a program, the student may remain enrolled until the student completes the grades offered at that school. Transfer requests are granted based on criteria and space availability (may be suject to lottery assignment); therefore, parents should carefully consider the potential effect on the family if their children attend schools in more than one attendance area. Approval of the transfer request for a student does not guarantee that approval will be granted for his/her sibling neither for the same academic year nor for future academic years. Transfers will not be allowed for a student to participate in extra-curricular programs, sports or activities. Upon Administration’s request, records of excessive absences, tardiness, discipline problems, or academics may be grounds for non-approval, non- renewal, or immediate termination of the transfer. Parents must provide transportation to and from school.
