SDOC School Choice for 2017-18

posted Feb 1, 2017, 10:24 AM by Deborah Wickliffe   [ updated Feb 1, 2017, 10:24 AM ]
School Choice for the 2017-2018 school year is now open and will remain open until June 1st. If you would like for your child to attend a school that is outside of the attendance area in which you live, you must complete a school choice form. If possible, please use the online form that can be found on the link below.  If you are unable to complete the online form, a paper copy may be obtained in the school office. School choice forms are required annually even if your child is currently on school choice. Contact the school office for any questions.

The following are highlights of the SDOC school choice policy:

  • Only students that reside in Oconee County are eligible for choice.
  • Transportation to a “choice school” is the responsibility of the parents/guardians (no bus service will be provided).
  • Students on school choice must submit an application each year.
  • Principals will consider behavior, attendance, and grades before approving applications.
  • The completed application is due to the choice school on Thursday, June 1st.
  • If more applications are received than the number of spaces available at any school, a lottery system will be used to fill spaces. 
The school district reserves the right to limit school choice enrollment by grade level or program as staffing or funding requires. Choice may also be limited by classroom space in the school(s).
