  5. A student residing in Williamson County may enroll in another Williamson County School District school if the parents provide prior to enrollment a copy of a bona fide contract and other supporting documentation of their intent to move into that transportation school zone within the current school year. Please upload the contract during the application process.
  6. Both resident and non-resident children of Williamson County Schools’ full-time employees are eligible to attend a school within the feeder school of the employee’s work assignment. Non-resident employees must pay the employee tuition rate.
  7. No transfers from one county school to another will be permitted during the school year.

  1. Routine procedure to request out of zone approval.
  2. Parent/Guardian submits a detailed letter of explanation regarding why the student should attend the out of zone school. Please reference the student's name and the school he/she wants to attend in the letter and include all documentation relevant to support a curricular and/or documented need. Send the letter and documentation to Allison Nunley, Planning & Zoning Mgr, allisonn@wcs.edu or to her attention at 1320 West Main Street, Suite 202, Franklin 37064.
