2018 Adopted Student Reassignment Plan


Pender County Schools is excited for the 2018-19 opening of Surf City Elementary School and Surf City Middle School. The new Surf City schools will assist in addressing overcrowding in the Topsail Area elementary and middle schools. We appreciate the community’s support in funding this project through the 2014 school bond.

The addition of two new schools requires the creation of student assignment areas for those schools, which, in turn, requires changes to student assignment areas for North Topsail Elementary, Topsail Elementary, South Topsail Elementary, and Topsail Middle.

This attendance area change may impact where your student is districted to attend school; however the Board of Education understands the needs of students and families and wants to allow students who wish to remain at their current school the opportunity to apply for reassignment to that school.

If you are interested in applying for reassignment, Reassignment Request forms are available at your child’s current school and at the Pender County Board of Education building, located at 925 Penderlea Hwy. Burgaw, NC 28425. Reassignment requests must be completed and received by your child’s current school no later than 4:00 p.m. Monday, March 12. All transfer requests will be reviewed in accordance with Board Policy 4150 Student Assignment.
