2017-18 School Calendar
The School Calendar Committee, consisting of parents, teachers and staff, appreciates the feedback from the community provided during the comment period in January. The school calendar feedback survey garnered 325 responses and 117 comments. The committee was able to make several suggested adjustments to the calendar based on that feedback, within the limits as set by the General Assembly. To review those school calendar requirements as set by the General Assembly, please visit the Legislation Summary.
The window to request student transfers and discretionary
admission to Moore County Schools will be February 1-28, 2017. Parents

admission process at Admissions and Transfers.
Please note, if you are domiciled outside of your child’s school attendance area and you do not submit a student transfer or discretionary admission request within the framework and timeframe outlined your child WILL NOT be allowed to continue attending their current school. If you have any questions related to the 2017-2018 student transfer process you may ask your school’s principal or call the office for Student Support Services at 910.947.2976.
