NOTICE OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CHOICE
Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, parents of students enrolled in Georgia public Schools may request to transfer their child to another school within the school district in which they reside, if the district determines there is classroom space available.
If the transfer is approved, the parent must assume the responsibility and cost of transportation to and from the school. Classroom space may be available at the following schools for the 2009-2010 school year:
Anna K. Davie Elementary (space available in grade 6)
East Central Elementary (space available in grade 5 and 6)
Elm Street Elementary (space available in grade 4)
North Heights Elementary (space available in grade 5 and 6)
Southeast Elementary (space available in grade 6)
West Central Elementary (space available in 5 and 6)
Since school begins on Monday, August 3, 2009, the Rome City Schools will accept transfer requests for the 2009-2010 school year from Monday, July 20, 2009 to Wednesday, July 29, 2009. Requests received after close of business, 4:30 p.m., July 29, 2009, will not be considered.
In cases where the number of transfer requests exceeds the classroom space available, a random lottery will be held. Parents will receive notification by telephone or by email by Friday, July 31, 2009.
