Out-of-Zone Transfer Students

Out-of-Zone Transfer Students

The Bristol Tennessee City Schools has an open transfer policy (6.206) which allows parents of elementary students who reside within the Bristol Tennessee City limits the option to request for their child to attend another elementary school within the Bristol Tennessee City School system other than the school in which they are zoned to attend. Consideration of transfer requests are based on established student-teacher ratios and the following priorities:

  • 1st Priority - Students residing in the requested school zone and students who are legal placements by virtue of Tennessee Code Annotated 49-6-3113.
  • 2nd Priority - Students residing within the city limits who file appropriate forms requesting transfers, with consideration given to those with siblings in the system.

Principal approval is required before a transfer student's enrollment is finalized.

An Out-of-Zone Transfer Request form may be downloaded below, or forms are available at each elementary school and at the Student Services office located in the Administration Building, 615 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. For additional information, please call the Student Services office at 423-652-9233 or refer to BTCS Policy 6.206 School Attendance and Transfers.
