  • Intradistrict Transfer 2024-2025

    Georgia House Bill 251 provides an Intradistrict Transfer option to students when a school within their system has additional classroom space available within a particular school.  This option does not apply to Hart County considering the district is a charter system.  However, the system does offer parents the opportunity to request a transfer of schools to either Hartwell Elementary or South Hart Elementary for the 2024-2025 school year.  No transfer requests to North Hart Elementary will be accepted.


    Parent Responsibilities 


    As a parent or guardian, you can request to have your child transferred to another public school within the school district of residence as long as the school district has determined that there is available classroom space at the school after all assigned students have been enrolled. If you choose to transfer your child to another school within the district, the law requires you to assume all costs and responsibilities related to the transportation of your child to and from the school as long as your child remains at that school.


    Transfer requests will be reviewed and approved or denied on the basis of a lottery in the event a particular school has available space and the number of transfer requests exceeds the remaining available capacity. Once available classroom space is reached at a school, no more transfers will be accepted at that school. Since it is possible that you may not receive your first choice, you may indicate more than one choice on the enclosed Transfer Request Form.  In order to process your request and be considered in the first lottery drawing for any available spaces, you will need to complete and submit the ‘Transfer Request Form’ by 3:30PM on July 12, 2024.  You will be notified of the status (approved or denied) of your request no later than the twentieth day of school.

    If you have questions regarding this process, please call 706-376-5141 or email lbennett@hart.k12.ga.us.
