HB 251-School Choice

HB 251 is an amendment to Georgia law that provides parents an option to transfer their child into another public school within the same district, as long as there is available classroom space. The law does not apply to charter schools, magnet programs, or newly-opened schools (for four years from the school’s opening date).
Each school district in Georgia is tasked with defining available classroom space. The Tift County School District’s plan for compliance with HB 251 was created using the framework provided by the Georgia Department of Education.
After careful analysis of the student population for the upcoming year, NO Tift schools have been deemed to have adequate permanent classroom space to accommodate School Choice transfer students for the 2015-2016 year. The past several years of budget cuts have forced increases in class sizes leaving no adequate space in any class at any school to accommodate School Choice.
Students who are currently approved for School Choice may continue in their school of choice until the exit grade, but no new applications for any students will be accepted for the 2015-16 school year.
