Parents must apply for open zone school slots by May 15


Parents must apply for open zone school slots by May 15

By WCS InFocus

Parents have until May 15 to submit out-of-transportation-zone applications for the 2019-20 school year, and there are some additional schools on the list.

Due to the rezoning that took place in the Nolensville area, several schools were added to the list of open zoned schools at the April 16 School Board meeting. The lists of schools can be found below.

Parents should go to the Out of School Zone Requests headline on the School Zones page of the WCS website to submit out-of-school-zone applications via the district’s online system. While applying, parents should keep in mind the following:

  • The grandfathering process is not automatic.
  • A separate application must be submitted for each student in a family.
  • Those students who have applied to be in a College, Career and Technical Education (CCTE) program must be approved for that program before they can submit an out-of-zone application. Out-of-zone applications for these students may be submitted after the May 15 deadline.

If the application is approved, a parent or guardian must transport their child to and from school. As always, the May 15 deadline does not apply to residential moves.

More details about the process are available on the application as well as a list of open-zoned schools for the 2019-20 school year.
