School Zones

  • The Williamson County School Board establishes school zones for the district. School zones may change when a building becomes over its student capacity or when the district opens new schools. Please note that you must reside in Williamson County to attend Williamson County Schools.

  • 2024-2025 Approved Open Zoned Schools

    Per state law, the list of open zoned schools is required to be posted for 2 weeks prior to accepting out of zone applications. The portal opens February 6 with the deadline to apply of April 15. You must currently reside in Williamson County to apply for an open zoned school. Apply for all out of zone categories

    Students currently approved to attend out of zone schools who are not changing buildings do not need to reapply. All rising 6th and 9th grade students roll up to their zoned schools until the out of zone application is approved. Unless related to a residential move, the deadline for all requests is April 15.

    Please note that out of zone students are not eligible for bus service.

Open Zoned Lottery Process

    • State law changed and a lottery is required if the number of open zone applications exceeds the available spots.
    • A parent will submit an application to attend an open zoned school and will receive a confirmation email with randomly assigned order number of the submitted application. 
    • The zoned and out of zone school principals will review the request.
    • The application is then sent to the Planning and Zoning Department.
    • The Planning and Zoning Department approves the request to enter the lottery, regardless of the number of applications received.
    • The parent receives an email stating that the application has entered the lottery.
    • After the deadline to apply, if the number of applications exceeds the number of spots available at a particular school, the lottery option will take effect within 5 business days.


    If a Lottery is Not Required

    • A parent receives an email stating their child is now assigned a place in the requested open zoned school.
    • A parent logs into the out of zone account to accept or reject the placement within 7 calendar days from the date of the email. 
    • When the placement is accepted by the parent, the Planning and Zoning Department changes the student’s school path field in Skyward to the new school.
