Application for Acceptance and Release Forms

  • Please submit the KCS Application for Elementary School Choice if:

    You reside within our district and are requesting that your child attend an elementary school outside of your school attendance zone.

    An explanation of Kannapolis City's "Schools of Choice" policy is as follows:

    • There is space available in the school you desire
    • You make a commitment to stay at that school the entire school year
    • You provide your own transportation

    Priority will be given to:

    • Students who have attended the requested school in the past with satisfactory attendance, behavior and academic effort
    • Students who are entering school for the first time and have older siblings currently at that school
