What if...

Please take a moment and watch our new video. We are asking the public to think outside the box for ideas which are in the best interest and most beneficial for our kids and the future of the Chambers County School District. In a few weeks an online survey will be posted for the public to begin having input. We are also completing a demographic study to help us with future enrollment projections, and we are completing a facilities assessment at all of our campuses. After the survey results are in, we will hold town hall meetings to present the results and begin the conversation of how to proceed.

Please share this video. It is hosted here on our Webpage. It will be also be posted to our Facebook page.  Please share this video.

Majority to Minority Transfers
What is M to M transfer? M to M stands for majority to minority. An M to M transfer is where a student who is currently enrolled in a school where his/her race is in the majority chooses to transfer to a school within the district where his/her race would be in the minority. For example an African American student who is currently attending Eastside, JP Powell, or LaFayette High School may transfer to another school in the district where their race would be in the minority. Transportation will be provided. Forms are currently available for M to M transfers for the 2017-18 school year. All requests must be received by May 1.
