Information for Student Reassignment Applications:
Each student in the Duplin County School System is expected to attend the school designated for the geographic assignment area in which he/she resides. A parent or guardian who is dissatisfied with a school assignment may request reassignment to a different school. The Superintendent or designee shall have the authority to approve or deny requests for reassignment for satisfactory reasons as established by the superintendent and communicated to students, parents, and guardians.
Enrollment in Duplin County Schools is generally limited to those students who meet the domicile or residence requirements. However, on occasion, special circumstances may warrant a student's enrollment in a different school system.
The number of spaces available in each grade level will be determined by the principal and reported to the Director of Support Services and the superintendent by March 15. Reassignment requests may be considered for approval for any reason if there is a seat available at the requested school. Parents may request changes in school assignment per steps outlined in Duplin County Schools Policy Code 4150, 4130 or 4130-R (out of county requests).
Fee: A fee of $10.00 will be charged for each application that is submitted.
Revocations: The principal of the school has the authority to recommend to the superintendent to revoke or non-renew a transfer or reassignment if the student fails to be in good standing in terms of academics, discipline, and other measures of standing and progress in the school district.
Transportation: Transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian of the student receiving the reassignment unless the student is approved for a reassignment for Child Care and public school transportation is provided from the approved provider’s location.
Timeline: Requests for student reassignment must be received on or before April 1st – May 15th – If this date falls on a weekend, reassignment requests will be due the following Monday.
Tuition: Refer to Policy Code 4135 Tuition for Discretionary Admissions.
