    The 2022-2023 Voluntary Transfer form is a formal request to transfer a CCS student from their home district school to a different school district within the CCS system. The parent or legal guardian must provide a specific reason for the transfer request. If the request is approved, the parent or legal guardian must provide timely transportation to and from the school.  This transfer is good for the current school year only if approved. No subsequent transfers will be granted if approved. If your child is in grades 6 through 12, they will not be eligible for athletic participation for 365 days from the first approved transfer date. Voluntary Transfers cannot be used to transfer into the Choice Programs such as Classical schools or Early College schools. 

    Once you submit the 2022-2023 Voluntary Transfer form, please allow at least 10 business days for processing. You will be notified by email when a decision is made.

    The 2022-2023 Voluntary Transfer applications will be accepted beginning April 25, 2022, through May 31, 2022.  All applications must be submitted by May 31, 2022, to be considered for approval.


    Very Important. Please Read:   Voluntary Transfer Applications received after May 31, 2022, will be processed upon conclusion of the CCS Year End Transition Process which will end on June 30, 2022. 


    Responses to transfer requests will be sent via email to the address indicated on the application.  Thank you for your interest in Cumberland County Schools.




    Please complete and return this form ONLY if you are assigned a year-round school that is serving your address and you want your child assigned to the traditional school that is also serving your address.  This form is only valid for the 2022-2023 school year.  

    Your child will be assigned to the year-round school serving your address for the 2022-2023 school year unless you submit this form.



    Note: If you wish for your child to remain at the assigned year-round school, the assignment is for the full academic year. Students can change their assignments during the school year only if they move out of the current attendance area.


    The Cumberland County Schools Student Release form grants permission for release from the Cumberland County School system to attend another North Carolina public school system. Once this form is submitted to the Student Assignment Office, it will be placed on the CCS Board of Education Agenda to be reviewed by the CCS Board of Education. A notification letter will be sent to you and the NC public school system for which the release is requested.

    This form must be completed and submitted for review annually if you wish for your child to continue enrollment/attendance in another NC public school system while residing in Cumberland County.
