Bill Would Allow Students to Transfer Out of County

House Bill 788, introduced by two Democrats and one Republican, would allow children to go to school not only out of their zone but out of the county in which they live. The bill would allow parents to cite a friend’s address to enroll their children in a school outside of their district or zone. For example, a student who lives in Camden could attend a school in Glynn if the parents have friends there willing to lend their legal address. It is illegal in Georgia to falsify an address to enroll children in a school out of their attendance zone.
