Available Space for 2020-2021

Space must be available after the school’s assigned students have been enrolled. For the 2020-2021 school year, the following schools are open to receive School Choice Privilege transfer requests :

  1. Julia P. Bryant Elementary School
  2. Portal Elementary School
  3. Stilson Elementary School
  4. Portal Middle School
  5. Portal High School
  • Applications for schools that are not open to receive requests will be accepted when the request is to allow a child to attend the same school as a special needs sibling who was placed by Bulloch County Schools at a closed school due to lack of services required at the sibling's home school.
  • Full-time employees of Bulloch County Schools may submit a School Choice Privilege transfer request for a closed school only if one of the following two criteria are met:
    • School requested is one which is within the attendance zone of the primary work location; or
    • School requested allows the student to stay in the same feeder pattern, even if the employee’s work location has changed since initial acceptance under School Choice Privilege.
  • The number of spaces available at open schools will not be pre-determined in advance of the application submission window in order to allow the district to consider the net effect of application approval at each school by grade and program.
  • Any special programs required by the student must be available at the school requested. Policy JBCCA: Student Assignment to Schools does not provide that the district allow for transfers to schools where special programs do not already exist. 

Note: Portal Middle High School is a combined, single campus for grades 6-12; however, for school choice the available space for middle school and high school is calculated separately.
