School Choice

The Decatur County Board of Education requires that all students attend the school in the zone in which they reside unless they are in a specialized program that contains students across school zones.  Any exceptions to this policy must be made through the “School Choice Plan.”

If your child will be in grades K-4 during the 2018-2019 school year and you desire to apply for a school out of your zone using the “School Choice Plan,” you will need to complete an application during the week of April 23 - April 27, 2018.  Applications may be obtained (during Choice Week) at the Decatur County Board of Education, 100 West Street, between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM or printed from the website www.dcboe.com.   Applications will be available and accepted ONLY during the week of April 23 - April 27, 2018.  If you have questions regarding the “School Choice Plan” or the applications procedures, please contact Mr. John H. Wooden at 248-2806.

The availability of slots will be contingent upon the final outcome of the District’s plans to potentially consolidate one of its elementary schools.

Georgia Milestones Re-Test Information

Decatur County Schools is a Strategic Waiver System, which allows our system to waive specific state board rules. In our current strategic waiver, we chose to waive O.G.C.A 20-2-283 & 20-2-284. This waiver allows us as a system not to retest students for the 2017-2018 school year. The wavier also allows us to be able to use other vital information from your child’s entire school year and not only state assessment scores in the promotion and retention policy for the 2017-2018 school year.
