School Choice Transfers under House Bill 251

Parent Notification

Under House Bill 251 you may request to transfer your child to another public school in our county for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year as long as the school district has determined that there is available classroom space at the school after all assigned students have been enrolled.

As you know, we are a small school system so this new law only applies to our schools that share grades, SGA Elementary, Waynesboro Primary School, and Blakeney Elementary School.  It does not apply to our middle school or high school. 

If you choose to transfer your child to another school in the district, the law requires you to assume all costs and responsibilities related to the transportation of your child to and from the school as long as your child remains at that school.  

In order to process your request, you will need to complete and submit the "Transfer Request Form" found below or available at the central office.  Requests for transfers will not be accepted after the close of business on July 24, 2013.

If you have questions regarding this, please contact Angela Williams, amwilliam@burke.k12.ga.us, and 706-554-5101.
