Deadline is Feb. 15 for hardship transfer applications
Applications are now available for parents who wish to apply for a 2011-12 hardship transfer or to renew a current hardship to another Fulton elementary, middle or high school. With recent changes to the Fulton County policy, academic hardships are now available not only for programs of study in the Career Tech areas, but also for World Languages.
Northview currently offers French, Spanish, Latin, German, and Chinese. While French and Spanish are offered at all high schools, the other three languages are not as prevalent. We are proud of the extensive offerings in all of our languages – from first year through Advanced Placement – and also have numerous exchange possibilities that allow for students to fully explore the cultural enrichment of another language.
Parents can use an online form, available through the “Parents” section of school system’s web site, to enter their information and then print it to obtain signatures and/or supporting documentation. Although using the online form will help expedite processing time, applications also can be picked up at all schools as well as the Fulton County Schools Administrative Center.
The deadline for submitting a transfer application is Feb. 15, 2011, by 4:30 p.m., with no exceptions or extensions granted. All requests must be received or postmarked by this date and time. Applications can be sent by mail, fax or hand-delivery to:
Fulton County Schools’ Student Assignment Office
c/o Meadows Operations Center
5270 Northfield Blvd.
College Park, GA 30349
In addition, school system employees who have children receiving an employee hardship transfer must renew their request through the Student Assignment office. Instead of employees submitting an employee verification letter from their school or location, this year the Human Resources Department will verify employment directly with the Student Assignment office.
The Feb. 15 deadline applies to students and parents seeking a hardship transfer for medical reasons, curriculum differences, child care situations or for employees’ children. Schools participating in open enrollment, a separate transfer process that allows students to move to a school with available space, will be announced in early May.
Parents with questions or who need more information about hardship transfers can contact the Fulton County Schools’ Student Assignment Office at 404-763-5550 or click here to visit the website.
Attention Northview School Community:
The Northview High School Counseling Department and NHS Student Council are co-sponsoring the documentary “Race to Nowhere” and invite all Northview parents, teachers, coaches, students, and staff to attend a private screening, free of charge, of this current, ground-breaking film. We are screening the movie twice, once on WEDNESDAY, January 26th @ 4:30pm and once on MONDAY, January 31st @ 7pm. The screenings are free and will be hosted by the Kaleidoscope Club advisers, Ms. Garcia and Ms. Crumbley, with help from teacher leaders, parents, and Northview school administrators.
