Student Transfer Requests
Cabarrus County Schools students are assigned to the elementary, middle, or high school serving the attendance area associated with the family's residence. Information as to the specific school assignment is available by accessing the CCS Attendance Locator.In very rare cases with extreme or unusual circumstances, parents may request a Hardship Transfer. These are carefully reviewed and rarely granted. In such cases, parents or guardians may request assignment to a school outside of their regular attendance area. Transfer requests made to attend another school during the school year are reviewed on space availability, the needs of the student, the effect on the school to which the transfer is requested, principal recommendations, and the allowable reasons for reassignment/transfer. It is important to provide supporting information as evidence of extreme or unusual circumstance.
