The Atlanta Public Schools 2019-20 General Administrative Transfer lottery ranking will be held on April 26th . 


    The lottery's purpose is to rank the transfer applications rank in relation to other applicants for the same grade. The official lottery results will be posted on or before Thursday, May 3rd by 5:00 PM at www.atlanta.k12.ga.us/transfers.

     Which schools have received more applications than projected transfer spaces available?


    Do I need to attend the lottery ranking?

    No, you are not required to attend but the lottery ranking is open to the public. The rankings are unofficial results.  The results will be verified and the final results will be posted on the APS student transfer webpage.


    Special Education/504 Students: A student with disabilities who applied will need to have his or her individualized educational program (IEP) or Section 504 plan evaluated to determine if capacity on the special education program and services required under the IEP or 504 plans are available at the school. The district is not required to add program capacity and services to a school. If services and program capacity are not available your transfer may be denied.


    Early College applicants: Applying 9th grade students are required to have met a minimum score on the  7th Grade Georgia Milestones in Reading and Mathematics.


    When will I be notified?

    Student Assignment will begin mailing Transfer Offers to parents/guardians beginning May 15, 2019. Parents will have 5 calendar days to accept or decline the transfer. If the parent/guardian declines the offered space or fails to respond within five (5) calendar days, that student will be removed from the roster and the space will be offered to the next student of that grade level on the list until all spaces have been filled.


    Are only the schools with more applicants than projected spaces ranked?



    Can parents pick up the transfer offer or the transfer letter?

    No. Student Assignment will mail all transfer letters to your address of record. It is an additional means of verifying that the address information provided during the application process is correct and current. If a letter is returned, the parent will be required to provide current proof of residency prior to receiving the transfer.


    What if I haven't received any notice about my transfer application by July 1, 2019 or lost my application number?
