2023-24 Enrollment Proposal
Final Draft Approved
The Board approved the final draft of the 2023-24 enrollment plan on Nov. 16. Because no new schools are opening in 2023-24, this year's student assignment proposal focused on relieving overcrowded schools and filling underutilized schools. These changes will allow students to attend a less crowded school and to have shorter bus routes. Affected students will be able to request a stability transfer starting Nov. 28 to stay at their current school, though they will be ineligible for transportation. See if your address is affected.
On Oct. 18, staff members presented the second draft of the 2023-24 Student Enrollment Proposal to the Board of Education.
An additional virtual information session has been scheduled for Oct. 26 to discuss Draft 2 changes.

Recommendations for Draft 2
- Proposed assignment changes from Heritage High to Wake Forest High. No students affected. The purpose of this is for feeder pattern alignment.
- Proposed assignment changes from South Garner High to Southeast Raleigh High. No students affected.
- Removing portions of Beaverdam Elementary proposed to be assigned to Forestville Elementary. This is a technical correction.
- Removing portions of River Bend Middle proposed to be assigned to Neuse River Middle. This is a technical correction.
On September 20, 2022, staff members presented the first draft of a new Student Enrollment Proposal to the Board of Education.
The proposal includes proposed school assignment changes for the 2023-24 school year.
Overall, we anticipate that only a very small percentage of students will be affected by this proposal.
This is the beginning of a community conversation that is scheduled to conclude with the school board adopting a final plan on November 15.
Why is this proposal necessary?
Since we are not opening any new schools for the 2023-24 school year, this year's student assignment proposal focuses on base assignment changes, calendar application changes and recommended stability rules in order to relieve overcrowded schools and fill underutilized schools.
These changes will provide an opportunity for students to attend a less crowded school and to have shorter bus routes. In addition, the Board will discuss options that allow families affected by this proposal the opportunity to apply for a stability transfer and remain at their current school without district transportation. Review the stability rules.
