Step 1 – Transfer Only - Check Residency & School Zone

Due to concerns with COVID-19 and understanding that parents have varying opinions about their children attending school at this time for in-person instruction, Shelby County Schools is providing the following learning options for the 20-21 SY for students who currently reside in one of the seven communities zoned for the Shelby County School District:

  • Traditional- On Campus Learning- Students will report to the school campus daily.
  • Remote- At-home Learning- Students will participate in all courses through a virtual format.

In order for a student to be enrolled in the Shelby County School District, and participate in one of the learning options, based on School Board Policy 6.1.2, the student must attend school in the zone in which they reside with a parent or legal guardian. Custody awarded through the court is a requirement for school enrollment. Students are not permitted to be a remote learner and reside outside of the Shelby County School District.
