Guilford County, NC -- Parents in Guilford County will need to request school transfers under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) earlier this year.
Guilford County Board of Education approved the measure Tuesday to allow parents more time to prepare for the upcoming school year.
The program allows parents to transfer their students if the Title I school they attend isn't meeting Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) requirements.
Parents with students at Allen Jay Elementary, Fairview Elementary, Hairston Middle, Oak Hill Elementary, Parkview Elementary, Peck Elementary and Union Hill Elementary will receive more information soon about their choice options under NCLB.
Historically in Guilford County Schools, parents have been informed of their choice options during the summer. By moving the timeline up and aligning the choice process with the magnet school application period, Feb. 13 to March 12, parents at the seven schools have the chance to weigh all of their options at once.
