Cumberland County Schools Choice Application 2017-2018
All applicants must be at least 5 years old by August 31, 2017 (except those applying for Cumberland Road Pre-K).


All assignments will be for a full academic year. Students may change assignments during the school year only if they move out of their current attendance area or meet hardship requirements. Reassignment will only be approved for return to home school district.

Any student whose choice is to remain at their assigned home district school will not need to complete an application. Students currently assigned to a choice program will remain assigned to their current school unless a “choice exit intent” form is completed and submitted to the Student Assignment Office. Forms will be mailed to parents; completed “choice exit intent” forms must be received at the Student Assignment Office no later than January 31, 2017 if you no longer wish for your child to remain assigned to their current choice school assignment.

1. Transportation will not be provided outside of the assigned home school attendance area. (Exception: Busing will be provided for students living in the Lewis Chapel district that are accepted to attend Anne Chesnutt). Parents must provide timely transportation to and from school each day if no exception for transportation has been made. (Failure to provide timely transportation may result in student transfer to their home school)
2. Siblings who also make application by the application deadline will be assigned to the same school if older sibling is selected.
3. Selection will be based on space available. If your choice is not available, the student will be assigned to the home school. All Cumberland County students will have an opportunity to participate in choice schools based on availability, facilities, and consideration of special needs.

Application must be submitted by February 27, 2017.

No student or employee in the Cumberland County Schools shall on the basis of age, gender, race, religion, national origin, marital status, or handicapping condition, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity.
