The Williamson County School Board will vote on proposed open-zoned schools at its February 18 meeting. Beginning February 19, the district will begin accepting all out of zone requests for the 2019-20 school year.

Parents must submit out of zone requests via the district’s online system. No paper forms will be accepted. The online request system can be found on the School Zones page of the WCS website. Parents must choose one of three options after creating an account: Open-Zoned Schools; Grandfather Provision for rising 5th, 8th, 11th or 12th grade students; or Out of Zone – All Other Provisions.

Parents will receive a confirmation email when the request has been submitted, and they will receive an acceptance or denial email from the Planning and Zoning Department after the request is reviewed.
