Now is the time for parents to apply for an open-zoned school or any out-of-zone requests. The registration window for the 2020-21 school year is open, and the deadline to apply is May 15.

The Williamson County School Board approved a list of open-zoned schools at its January 21 meeting.

“Parents may take advantage of our open-zoned schools,” said WCS Planning and Zoning Manager Allison Nunley. “But now’s the time to submit any out-of-zone request to include siblings, grandfathering or continuing in the feeder pattern.”

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.
