Opportunity to Attend Underpopulated Classrooms

posted Jul 15, 2014, 11:11 AM by Barbara Dalton   [ updated Jul 15, 2014, 12:28 PM ]

The School Board of Floyd County Public Schools has instituted a new policy to help correct overcrowded classrooms.  Policy JC now gives parents/guardians an opportunity to request for students to attend underpopulated classes in the division based on classroom averages.   Transportation will not be provided by the school system.  A letter requesting the change in attendance area, as well as a form found on our website, would need to be sent to the Superintendent and will be approved by the School Board.  The required form can be found in the "Information for Parents" section or you may click here to go directly to the form.  Parents that request a change in school attendance area will be notified by August 1st as to whether the request has been granted. Permission will be granted on an annual basis dependent upon class size.  The following grades and schools are considered to be underpopulated: 

                Check Elementary:   Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade

                Indian Valley Elementary:  Kindergarten, 1st grade, 4th grade, and 7th grade

                Willis Elementary:  3rd grade, 4th grade, 6th grade and 7th grade

Please contact the Instructional Office if you have any questions or concerns – 745-9400.
