Middle School Attendance Area Exceptions Open May 23, 2023

Students attending a school other than the one whose zone (attendance area) they live in are called Attendance Area Exceptions. The following guidelines are used in granting Attendance Area Exceptions (AAE):

Middle school (6-8) AAEs will be issued beginning May 23, 2023, for the 2023-2024 school year until 20 days after the first day of school (September 11, 2023). Due to high enrollment, spots are limited.

Secondary students must complete AAE transfers by July 1, 2023, to be eligible to participate in athletics and activities.

Beginning May 23, 2023, families can apply for attendance area exceptions for middle school at the Office of Student Services at 3205 Jenny Lind Road, Building C.

Elementary (K-5) Attendance Area Exceptions (AAE) will be issued on the eleventh day (August 28, 2023) of the school year until the 20 school days after the 11th day (September 25, 2023). According to Arkansas class size standards, all AAEs will be issued based on space availability.
