Beginning Tuesday, April 2, 2013, students currently attending a school within the Lebanon Special School District will bring home paperwork denoting whether or not they will be attending school in the Lebanon Special School District for the 2013-2014 school year. This paperwork must be returned to the student’s school by Tuesday, April 9, 2013. Registration for the 2013-2014 school year will take place on Monday, July 22, 2013 at the student’s zoned school (Byars Dowdy, Castle Heights, Coles Ferry, Sam Houston, Walter J. Baird Middle, Winfree Bryant Middle). All parents must provide proof of residency at the time of registration, which may include a utility and/or phone bill identifying the name and address of the parent/guardian; notarized letter from a manager/landlord if utilities are included in a rent payment; or property tax bill by other acceptable documents that contain proof of residence (i.e. drivers license, etc.). If you are unable to attend Registration Day (July 22, 2013), please contact your child’s school on or before July 22, 2013 to register your child appropriately.

Student Transfer Procedures
The Lebanon Special School District will be accepting transfer requests from April 2, 2013 through April 23, 2013 for out of zone requests (from your zoned LSSD school to another LSSD school) and out of district requests (from another district into Lebanon Special School District). The status of transfer requests received during the above time period (April 2 – April 23, 2013) will be communicated to families by the first week of June.
If you are interested in applying (or reapplying) for an out of zone or out of district transfer for your child so that he/she may attend one of the Lebanon Special School District schools, the “Request for Student Transfer” form must be completed in its entirety and submitted to your child’s school or the Central Office located at 701 Coles Ferry Pike.
The request will be reviewed by the appropriate administrator(s) before the Director’s Office provides final approval.
Each transfer request will be reviewed and approved, denied, or revoked depending on space availability, chronic misbehavior, and/or chronic attendance issues. Transfers within the Lebanon Special School District are for a one-year time period (applicable school year) and are given reconsideration on an annual basis.
Once a student establishes an athletic record at one school, he/she is not eligible to participate for one calendar year in athletics at another school within the district without a bona fide change of residency.
No transportation will be provided for students on approved transfers.
