Transfers and Discretionary Admissions

Student Admissions and Transfers If a parent has a need for their child to attend a school outside of their zoned attendance area, they can request a school transfer provided they meet the criteria set forth by the Moore County Board of Education.  School transfer requests must be submitted during the open transfer window.  Our transfer window for the 2022-23 school year is open February 1 - 28.  The window is now closed.

Below, you will find a letter sent home to all parents, information related to the student transfer and discretionary admission process, a link to the online application, and a list of "capped" schools for 2022-23.  Capped schools are those that are at or over 95% of capacity and are unable to accept new transfer or discretionary admissions.  Rising Grade transfer requests for capped schools will be considered to the extent possible.
