Provisions of School Choice

School Choice Renewal
The decision to attend North Rowan under the provisions of school choice will automatically renew annually unless parents/guardians request otherwise.

Athletic Wait Period
Students who choose to attend North Rowan High School will not be subject to the 365-day athletic wait period that applies to traditional student transfers.

Students who enroll in their “home school” after attending North Rowan High under the provisions of school choice, will be subject to a 365-day athletic wait period. "Home School" refers to the student's school serving the student's domicile at the time of the choice transfer termination.

School Choice Procedures and Timeline
The decision to attend North Rowan High School under the provisions of school choice should be made during the transfer window.  An exception to this deadline may be made for students who move (with documentation) into the Rowan-Salisbury School System district after the deadline and prior to the start of school.  Transfers into North Rowan High School via school choice provisions will not be allowed during the school year. 

A “School Choice Form” for students wishing to attend North Rowan High School should be completed and returned to the Rowan-Salisbury Schools Enrollment Specialist office, during the transfer window.  The “School Choice Form” will be available at school sites and the Wallace Education Forum. 

Students attending North High School under the provisions of school choice will not be allowed to enroll in the “home school” until the following semester.  A 365-day wait period for athletics would apply upon enrollment in their “home school.”

Students whose applications for transfer are approved must adhere to the following stipulations:

                A. Comply with the district’s attendance policy

                B. Exhibit exemplary conduct

                C. Maintain the academic average for promotion to the next grade level

A principal can recommend to the Enrollment Specialist that a School Choice transfer be revoked if any of the stipulations are not met, the transfer was requested for athletic or social reasons, or the transfer was granted upon false or misleading information.
