“Your Future With Municipal Districts or Shelby County Schools”
Monday, February 24, 2014
4:45 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Bon Lin Elementary School
3940 North Germantown Road
Bartlett, TN 38133.

The General Choice transfer period for the 2014-15 school year will begin on February 18 and run through March 7.  The process allows students to choose a school with available space in the district that best fits their educational needs.

The General Choice Transfer process is NOT the same as the Optional Schools application process. The district’s 48 Optional Schools have specific academic criteria for admissions and a separate application period. For information about Optional Schools, call (901) 416-5338 or go to http://www.scsk12.org/uf/optional_schools.

The General Choice Transfer process is open to ALL students in Shelby County and includes all schools that will be part of Shelby County Schools during the 2014-15 school year.  General Choice transfers are approved based on the order they are received, within priority categories.  The district’s School Admissions Polity (#6002) outlines all priority considerations.

Students on an existing General Choice transfer at a school remaining with SCS in 2014-15 do NOT have to reapply.  Students may remain at a school on General Choice transfer through the exit grade as long as all criteria for attendance and behavior are met.  Separate transfer renewal approval letters will be sent to these students.

Once again, the General Choice transfer process will be completely online to afford the most opportunities for students and families in Shelby County.  NO paper applications will be printed or accepted.  An online portal will be accessible before the application period for parents to test access on their personal computers and smart phones.  The district will also announce several application locations for parents who do not have personal Internet access and/or need hands-on assistance.

**IMPORTANT** SCS is NOT able to renew General Choice Transfers for  students attending a school that will be part of a municipal district in 2014-15 and do not live within the school’s municipal boundaries. The SCS School Admissions Policy and General Choice transfer process applies to ONLY schools that will be part of the district in 2014-15.  Under the following scenarios, transfer renewals CANNOT be approved by SCS:

Scenario 1 – A current SCS student who lives in the city limits of Memphis or an unincorporated area of Shelby County and is attending a municipal school on a General Choice transfer.  Ex. Student lives in Memphis and attends Arlington H.S.

Scenario 2 – A current SCS student who lives in one municipality and is attending school in another on a General Choice transfer.  Ex. Student lives in Collierville and attends Bartlett ES.

Decisions about student  enrollment within the municipal school districts will be made by the superintendent and school board in each respective district.  If you live in a municipality and/or are currently attending a school that will be part of a municipal district in 2014-15, please contact the appropriate municipal school board for more information about student enrollment.
