General Administrative Transfers – permits a student to attend an out of zone school until the highest grade of the school. Approval is subject to space availability at the requested school.

Georgia Special Needs Scholarship Transfers – permits eligible special education students to request a transfer to another APS school on the basis of special needs. Approval is subject to space availability at the requested school. Visit this page for detailed information:http://www.atlanta.k12.ga.us/Page/760
