Policy 8155, School Assignment, allows registered families to file a request for their child to attend a school other than the one assigned to their address of residence within Loudoun County. Please see Policy 8155 (above) for complete details.
The special permission request window for the 21-22 school year opens to the public on April 1 (at 10:00 am) and closes on June 30. Employees may apply beginning March 1 (at 10:00 am) if applying to bring their child to their own school or an elementary school in their employment cluster.
If you have recently moved - please contact your school's registrar to update your address first. Once your address has been updated at the school, you may file for a special permission (family relocation/move out) by clicking below if you would like for your child to remain at their current school of attendance. Please note that you must have moved AFTER September 8, 2020 for this option to be available to you. More information about Family Relocations during the school year can be found on the page referenced below as well.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CANCELING A SPECIAL PERMISSION:
If a parent/guardian wishes to cancel or rescind a special permission after it has been granted, a written request must be submitted to the office of Special Permissions.
Please note for rescinding a special permission at the elementary school level, if the student's home school is at grade level capacity, the student will be assigned to a regionally placed school.
