School Choice (HB 251 & SB 10) Transfers
Today is the first day that parents/guardians may begin apply for School Choice transfers. Capacity numbers have been posted (see Mr. York’s email from Friday) and the online application is active. This year we will be accepting application online only. Therefore we again have a kiosk set up in the lobby at 514 Glover Street for parents to access.
We are again asking that all schools post the following announcement of their website:
2015-16 School Choice
The web address for the link is: http://www.cobbk12.org/generalinfo/transfers/schoolchoice.aspx
All schools, regardless of having any available space, are asked to have this posted by Friday, February 5.
