NCSS Announces House Bill 251 Transfer Procedures

After reviewing guidelines provided by the Georgia Department of Education, the Newton County School System has identified two schools as potentially eligible to receive students whose parents wish to transfer their child under the provisions of House Bill 251. Those schools are: Flint Hill Elementary and Alcovy High School.

The statute allows Georgia parents to request to transfer their students to other schools in the district as long as there is classroom space available at the school after its assigned students have been enrolled.  A student who transfers to another school pursuant to this law may elect to continue to attend such school until the student completes all grades of the school. Newton County Schools has determined the tentative seats available per grade level at each of the potential transfer schools as listed below:
