Last Call for Out-of-Zone Transportation Applications

  • Children get off a school bus

Time is running out for parents to submit Out-of-Zone transportation applications for the 2019-20 school year. May 15 is the deadline.

The lists of open-zoned schools can be found on the School Zones page of the WCS website.

That is where parents can go to submit out-of-school-zone applications using the district’s online system. While applying, parents should keep in mind the following:

  • The grandfathering process is not automatic.
  • A separate application must be submitted for each student in a family.
  • Those students who have applied to be in a College, Career and Technical Education (CCTE) program must be approved for that program before they can submit an out-of-zone application. Out-of-zone applications for these students may be submitted after the May 15 deadline.
  • The May 15 deadline does not apply to residential moves.

Out of zone requests submitted after May 15, except those related to residential moves or CCTE programs, must be reviewed by the Zoning Appeals Committee.
