School Assignment for 2023-2024 School Year

WCPSS School Assignments for every student were sent home on Thursday, December 1st.  Track 2 slips were sent home last week. It was on a yellow full piece of paper.  Be sure to check your child’s folders and bookbag if you did not see it.  If you did not receive this yellow paper,  it means you have a parent portal account and you should check your child’s school assignment directly.   If you have been assigned a school that is not your choice, the WCPSS Transfer period will open on February 24th. Student Assignment makes these decisions on an individual basis and according to whether or not we will still have an enrollment cap for the new school year.   If you have any questions, please contact our data manager, Mrs. Goodwin, at or 919-841-4333.    


Please note that the window to request a Sycamore Creek Track Change will begin at the end of February through March 13th.  A link to this form will be sent in the Monday Principal Updates at that time.
