If your child attended a school in Wilkes County (for grades Pre-K through 12) during the 2017-2018 school year and you need to enroll your child in a different Wilkes County school for the 2018-2019 school year, please complete the following steps:
There are some situations that allow parents/guardians to request a school assignment different from the one that serves the student's home address.
Please see Wilkes County Schools Board Policy 4150 (School Assignment) for conditions under which a parent/guardian may request to attend a school other than the one that serves the student’s current residence.
If your situation meets one of the qualifying conditions, please contact Melissa Shepherd at (336) 667-1121 for further information regarding Freedom of Choice Assignments.
