Change of Residence

Change of Residence

JVia-HouseA student who changes residence during the school year to another attendance area in Charlottesville may be permitted to complete the school year in the school in which he/she was originally assigned with permission of the principal. The parent is responsible for transportation to and from school.

The length of time the student has attended the original school before the year of the move will determine where they are required to enroll at the beginning of the next school year. If the student has attended the original school for at least three years, he is eligible to complete his education at the original school, and the parent/guardian must provide transportation. If the student has not been in attendance for three years, the student shall enroll in and attend the school serving the attendance zone in which he or she resides at the beginning of the next school year. A student who moves during the school year to a residence outside of the corporate limits of the City of Charlottesville may continue to attend Charlottesville City Schools at no tuition charge for the remaining school year with approval of the Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services. The parent is responsible for transportation to and from school. Request forms for out-of-zone attendance must be submitted annually to the office of the Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services who will forward a copy to the office of the principal of the desired school of attendance.
