CCSD Offers School Choice Options

Did you know that the Cherokee County School District offers a variety of school choice options?

From reassignment to a school with open seats to “move on when ready” high school programs to STEM Academies, CCSD is nationally recognized for the educational choices it offers families.

Fourteen CCSD elementary schools have open seats next school year for students from outside the attendance zone, including most STEM and Fine Arts Academies.  Parents need to apply for reassignment to these schools by March 1, and the application process and window now is the same for all schools including the Academies.  Applications are online here.  No middle or high schools are open for this type of reassignment next school year due to capacity limitations.

High school choice options including alternative schools, virtual school and dual enrollment have varying timelines and requirements; parents should contact their child’s high school counselor for more information.

2018-19 School Reassignment Requests Accepted February 1-March 1

Parents who wish to utilize general reassignment as a school choice option within the Cherokee County School District next school year can make those requests during the next month.

The window for school reassignment/transfer requests for the 2018-19 school year opens Thursday, February 1 and continues through Thursday, March 1.  Fourteen CCSD elementary schools are “open” (meaning classroom space is available to accommodate students from outside the attendance zone) for requests, including most CCSD STEM and Fine Arts Academies.    This year there are no middle or high schools open for reassignment due to capacity limitations.  Information and application forms are accessible here.

There will not be a separate enrollment window for the STEM and Fine Arts Academies this year; those requests must be made within the same time frame with the same application (linked above).

Information about all CCSD school choice initiatives is shared in this document, CHOICES, here.

High school choice options outlined in the document (virtual school, dual enrollment, etc.) have varying timelines depending upon the program; parents should contact their child’s counselor to discuss these opportunities.
