Track Change Requests for 2024-2025 

Each year, things may present themselves where your family needs to consider your child being on a different track from their current track. If you need to request a track change, please do so by completing THIS FORM.  Paper copies of the track change form will also be sent home in Monday folders if you prefer to complete it and return it to school. Please reach out to our data manager Mary Canny at or 919.562.6000 with any questions. No track change requests will be accepted after 2/16/2024.  All requests will be reviewed when we begin creating classes for next year and families will be notified of whether or not their request is approved.
