Important Information Regarding Transfer Requests

Student Transfer Applications are now available for the 2017-2018 school year. The applications, available online or at your child’s school, must be completed in order for your student’s transfer request to be considered for the next school year.  Requests must be submitted to school of intended enrollment no later than June 1, 2017.

Dr. Don Phipps, Superintendent of Beaufort County Schools, is currently monitoring enrollment numbers and available occupancy for each building. Due to enrollment numbers that have buildings at 95 percent capacity or higher, the following schools are currently closed to new transfers: Eastern Elementary School, John Cotten Tayloe Elementary School, P. S. Jones Middle School, and Washington High School.

New transfers refers to a transfer request that is being made for the very first time for a child. Transfers that are requested historically for a child, as well as siblings of this child who are just beginning school will be accepted.

Other schools are currently at 90-95 percent capacity. Administrators are closely watching these schools. If the capacity exceeds 95 percent, the school will be closed to new transfers. Those schools being closely monitored at this time are Bath Elementary School, Chocowinity Middle School, and Chocowinity Primary School.
