Open Enrollment

For the 2022-23 school year, the State of Tennessee adopted new legislation - Public Law 479 - stating how school districts must consider zone exemption requests. Following the guidelines of this law, Bedford County Schools will conduct the open enrollment process from June 15-July 15, 2022. During this time, a parent or guardian of a student may seek to transfer his or her child to an open-zoned school for the 2022-23 school year if there is availability.

 

As directed by this new law, Open Enrollment Applications submitted during this open enrollment process time frame are subject to approval through a lottery system if more students apply than available seats. To ensure your application is considered, it is important to submit your application between June 15 and July 15, 2022. The Open Enrollment Application will be approved based on the open seats listed below.
