    OPEN TRANSFERS FOR STUDENTS

    During the 2009 session of the Georgia General Assembly, HB251 was passed and subsequently signed by Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue.  This bill allows for open transfers for students into schools that are not deemed at, or above, capacity by local school districts.
