Some schools have seats open for transfers

Submitted by Whitfield County Schools

— Georgia law allows parents to request a transfer of enrollment to another public school within their local school district, if that school has available seats.

To request a transfer, complete the Transfer Request Form (available for pickup at the Central Office and Support Services Center), then mail or deliver by hand to Wanda Phillips, Chief Officer of Student Support Services, 201 E. Tyler St., Dalton, GA 30721.
