Attendance Zone Changes
Reflecting growth in the northern portion of the district, the Carroll County Board of Education has approved a new strategy that shifts multiple school attendance zones effective in August 2024.
The strategy includes master plans for each school campus and attendance zone changes that impact all five clusters of schools in the system and are aimed at better distributing enrollment growth that is occurring primarily in the northeastern portion of Carroll County. Overall the changes shift attendance zones east, sending about 450 Villa Rica students to the Central, Mount Zion and Temple zones. The Central zone loses about 120 students north of Carrollton to the Mount Zion district, while about 30 students are shifted from the west of the Temple cluster to Mount Zion. Finally, the Bowdon zone gains about 220 students from the western and southern parts of the Mount Zion zone.
While all clusters of schools are impacted, not every individual school will see changes. The district has mailed and emailed a letter to all families affected by the attendance line adjustments to explain the waiver process for students who want to stay in their existing school. In-person information sessions will be held in zones receiving new students so that families can tour the schools and meet administrators.
