    Out-of-District & Out-of-Zone Enrollments

    Gordon County Schools has divided the district into six elementary districts, two middle school districts, and two high school districts. District lines have been drawn to ensure that the proper number of students reside in each district. Students may make application for out-of-district or out-of-zone enrollment. The school principal will consider students for out-of-district enrollment based on the following conditions:

      • The student has a satisfactory behavior record and is in good standing at the home school;
      • The student has satisfactory academic achievement (C average or better and on grade level) at previous school;
      • The student’s attendance is in compliance with the Gordon County Board of Education Attendance Policy JBD;
      • The student’s parents/guardians are willing to furnish transportation to and from school in a punctual manner;
      • Parents/Guardians will be required to enter into a yearly contractual agreement;
      • The administration will have the discretion to enroll out-of-district students as long as the enrollment does not violate state standards and/or Board of Education policy;
      • The administration will have the authority to require written documentation of residency; 
      • For high school students, once the student attends high school any transfer to another school without a residency change into the new high school attendance district may result in the loss of one year of varsity eligibility for interscholastic competitive activities.
