Press Release

COLUMBUS, GA - Approximately 7,000 school assignment letters will be mailed to parents or legal guardians of Muscogee County students for the 2010-2011 school, on Friday, April 23, 2010. 

Parents of rising sixth grade and ninth grade students, and residents with new home addresses will receive the assignment letters. 

If a student does not receive an assignment letter, in most cases, the student will attend their present school for the 2010-2011 school year.  However, school assignments are based on the legal home address of the parent or legal guardian.  Proof of legal residency is required before a school assignment is granted.

Parents of students who have moved (after a school assignment has been made) should report to the Central Registration office in the Public Education Center, located at 2960 Macon Road, for an assignment to a new school. 

Parents must bring proof of their new home address (current utility bill and lease agreement or home ownership documents).

Parents of new students to the Muscogee County School District should also report to Central Registration office with proof of their current home address (current utility bill and lease agreement or home ownership documents), the child's birth certificate, certificate of immunization, eye, ear and dental examination, report card, and student's social security card.

The parents of students who will not be returning to the Muscogee County School District for the 2010-2011 school year should contact their child's school to complete a summer withdrawal.  The Central Registration office is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 Hardship Transfer Requests

The deadline to apply for a student hardship transfer for the 2010-2011 school year is Friday, May 14, 2010.  No hardship transfers will be considered after May 14, 2010. Hardship Transfer application forms may be requested from school principals, or the Central Registration office in the Public Education Center.

All hardship transfer requests must state a compelling reason for the requested transfer, list the child's assigned school for the 2010-2011 school year, and list the requested school choice for the 2010-2011 school year.  The applicant must obtain the signature of the principal of the school of assignment and return the completed request to the Central Registration office by Friday, May 14, 2010, 5:00 p.m. 

Hardship transfer requests will be considered based on space available at the requested school and the validity of the stated reason for the transfer.  All 9th and 10th grade students, including children of all employees, who receive approved hardship transfers to Hardaway High School or Northside High School, will be assigned to the annex sites (Hardaway Annex at Jordan High School and Northside Annex at Kendrick High School) due to overcrowding at the main campuses.  Action on hardship transfer requests for the 2010-2011 school year will be made in June 2010.  Parents will be notified by mail of the decision.

For more information, contact the Central Registration office, (706) 748-2222 or check out: www.mcsdga.net.
