2018-19 Majority to Minority Notice

NOTICE TO ALL MCDUFFIE COUNTY RESIDENTS

For the 2018-2019 School Year

Under guidelines of 1974 Order Ridley and United States v. Georgia, the McDuffie County School System must inform all parents of children living in McDuffie County of the opportunity for a Majority-to-Minority transfer to eligible schools.  Parent(s)/Guardian(s) have the option of requesting a transfer for their child in which his or her child is the majority to a school in which his or her child is the minority.

Once enrolled, students may continue to attend such school until they complete all grades of the school.  Following completion of all grades, these students will be expected to return to their regular attendance zone.  For Majority-to-Minority students, transportation to the approved transfer school will be provided at no charge to the parent.

Parents or guardians interested in making a Majority-to-Minority transfer request should read Board Policy JBC and complete a Transfer Request Form, which is available at the Board of Education central office located at 716 N. Lee Street and on the McDuffie County School System website.

Completed forms must be submitted to the McDuffie County Board of Education central office to the Director of Curriculum and Instruction no later than May 22, 2018.

Any questions regarding this announcement may be directed to Dr. Lynn Cato, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, at 706-986-4022.

In accordance with this order and because the district has only one middle school and one high school, no other intradistrict transfers are available.
