SDOC offering School Choice
School Choice for the 2013-2014 school year is now open and will remain open until March 8. If you would like for your child to attend a school that is outside of the attendance area in which you live, you must complete a school choice form, explains Oconee County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mike Lucas. Use the online form that can be found on the school district website at www.oconee.k12.sc.us. The form is located in the left navigation bar. If you are unable to complete the online form, a paper copy may be obtained in the school office. School choice forms are required annually even if your child is currently on school choice. Contact the school office for any questions. The school choice policy for the School District of Oconee County states: Only students that reside in Oconee County are eligible for choice. Transportation to a “choice school” is the responsibility of the parents or guardians. Students on school choice must submit an application each year. Principals will consider behavior, attendance, and grades before approving applications. The completed application is due to the choice school on Friday, March 08. If more applications are received than the number of spaces available at any school, a lottery system will be used to fill spaces. The school district reserves the right to limit school choice enrollment by grade level or program as staffing or funding requires. Choice may also be limited by classroom space in the school.
