The Decatur County Board of Education requires that all students attend the school in the zone in which they reside unless they are in a specialized program that contains students across school zones. Any exceptions to this policy must be made through the “School Choice Plan.”
If your child will be in grades K-4 during the 2018-2019 school year and you desire to apply for a school out of your zone using the “School Choice Plan,” you will need to complete an application during the week of April 23 – April 27, 2018. Applications may be obtained (during Choice Week) at the Decatur County Board of Education, 100 West Street, between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM or printed from the website www.dcboe.com. Applications will be available and accepted ONLY during the week of April 23 – April 27, 2018. If you have questions regarding the “School Choice Plan” or the applications procedures, please contact Mr. John H. Wooden at 248-2806.
The availability of slots will be contingent upon the final outcome of the District’s plans to potentially consolidate one of its elementary schools.
