GRANDFATHERING AND REZONING
 
 
The Atlanta Board of Education passed zoning changes and closures schools beginning SY2012-2013.  This decision impacts groups of students across the district. While not all students have been impacted, the following quick reference chart outlines how the grandfathering and rezoning impacts each group of students. Students impacted by grandfathering and rezoning will receive letters to take home to their parents/guardians. If you have any questions, please contact Student Relations at 404-802-2233 or placements@atlantapublicschools.us.
 

**Previous grandfathering for Brandon ES, Jackson ES and Parkside excluded.
