INTRADISTRICT TRANSFER OPTION

State law in Georgia allows intradistrict transfer within the state. The Jefferson City School System has no options for intradistrict transfer because the system is comprised of only one school per grade band (Jefferson Elementary School - Grades PreK-2; Jefferson Academy - Grades 3-5, Jefferson Middle School - Grades 6-8, and Jefferson High School - Grades 9-12).
