Student Reassignments 


The Board of Education of the Johnston County Schools has the authority to assign any student from one school facility or classroom to another within attendance areas. This authority shall be delegated to the Deputy Superintendent of Schools. If a parent would like to reassign a student to another school outside of their home district, they should follow the student reassignment process. The process starts at the requested school.

  • Parent/ Guardian obtains "Request for Student Reassignment" form from the requested school.
  • Parent/Guardian submits completed form to the requested school office.
  • Principal reviews, signs, and submits the form to the Deputy Superintendent.
  • Deputy Superintendent approves or denies the request.
  • Parent/Guardian receives notification of approval via regular mail or notification of denial via certified mail.
  • Parent/Guardian may file a written appeal to Deputy Superintendent.

Appeal letters may be faxed to 934-1114 or sent by mail to P. O. Box 1336, Smithfield, NC 27577.  For more information please see Policy Code 4100.

No person shall be assigned or reassigned, refused admission to, or be excluded from any public school on the basis of race, creed, color, or national origin. No school attendance zone shall be drawn for the purpose of segregating persons of various races, creeds, colors, or national origins from the community.
