Georgia House Bill 251 application requests are accepted June 30 until July 14th at 5:00 pm. Forms are available at all schools in the Muscogee County School District and at the central registration office.

Parents who are interested in applying must complete and submit a House Bill 251 Request Form and return it to the Muscogee County Public Education Center, located at 2960 Macon Road, in the Division of Student Services. The deadline to submit forms is 5p et on July 14, 2014. Parents may also determine the school of assignment by accessing the School Locator at https://locator.muscogee.k12.ga.us/Locator/. To access the information you can type your street address in the online link of the school locator to see the school of assignment. All assignments are determined by the parent/guardian's legal home address.
