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 at the elementary level
following the process described below.
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 the close of business on July 16,
2018. You will be notified of the status (approved or denied) of your request no later than the
twentieth day of school.
The following schools and grade levels within those schools currently have space for transfers:
- Hartwell Elementary-All Grade Levels
- North Hart Elementary-Grades K, 2, 3, 4, and 5 (First grade has no openings.)
- South Hart Elementary-Grades K, 1, 2, 4, and 5 (Third grade has no openings.)
