The Johnston County Board of Education has the authority to assign any student from one school facility or classroom to another within attendance areas.

- Parent/Guardian fills out the online Request for Student Reassignment Form
- Principal reviews, signs, and submits the form to Dr. David Pearce, Area Assistant Superintendent.
- Director approves or denies the request.
- Parent/Guardian receives email notification of decision. If request is denied, the parent/guardian will also receive a letter via certified mail.
- Parent/Guardian may file an appeal by using the online Request for Student Reassignment Appeal Form (Appeal forms will not be processed until May 15. At that time each appeal will be addressed in the order it was received. The appeal process may take several weeks to complete.)
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.
Completed requests for reassignment must be received by the Johnston County Public Schools no later than July 1 of each year.
