2020-2021 Zone Exemption application information - Deadline April 15, 2020

We will begin accepting zone exemption applications on Feb. 1 and the deadline to apply is April 15. Any parent who feels they have a significant hardship may apply, and the decision depends greatly on whether the requested school has available space. If it is an overcrowded school, we are not permitted to approve a zone exemption. 

Applications will be accepted online this year instead of paper and all information will be posted on the district’s website beginning Jan. 31.

If you have any questions about the zone exemption process, please contact the Communications Director James Evans at (615) 893-5812 or
