To prepare for the opening of the new Southeast Alamance High School, the ABSS Board of Education approved a new rezoning plan on November 8th, 2022. This plan was adopted as a way of populating the new school, easing overcrowding at the District’s existing high schools, and limiting the number of students who would have to move schools using natural boundaries like roads, rivers, creeks, and railroads to reconfigure the lines.

The Board also revised its transfer policy to limit the number of students who would be allowed to transfer under the new school reassignment.  Additionally, the transfer window that traditionally opens April 1 to May 1, 2023 has been suspended.

Rising seniors will be allowed to remain at their current school if they choose.  All other students will be required to attend their reassigned schools.  Exceptions will be made for homeless students, employees’ children, and those students deemed at risk at their domiciled school.   Students will be notified in their January report cards of their assigned school for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Students will NOT be allowed to transfer into schools at capacity. The following schools are at or over capacity (21 of 36 schools):

Alexander Wilson Elementary
A-O Elementary
Eastlawn Elementary
Elon Elementary
Garrett Elementary
Haw River Elementary
