Student Assignment Office
  • Welcome to GCS, where we strive to ensure we provide the best educational opportunities for each of our students.

    Thank you for choosing Guilford County Schools!

     Each student enrolled in Guilford County Schools is assigned
    to an elementary, middle or high school in one of four ways:

     1) based on the attendance are in which the student's
    parent(s) or court-appointed guardian/custodian resides,

     2) through application to a magnet or
    high school option program,

     3) through the reassignment process as
    detailed in Board of Education policy JBCC, or

     4) through compliance with federal laws.


     Student assignment is based on the following guidelines:

    • Domicile of parent(s) or court-appointed
      guardian/custodian (where you live)

    • Discovery and development of individual
      student's gifts and talents

    •  Parent choice of the appropriate educational
       program for the child

    •  Efficient use of facilities

    •  Determination by school staff that student meets the
      criteria of homeless children and youth as
      defined by the McKinney-Vento
      Homeless Assistance Act of 2001
