Zones & Transportation

Attendance Zones

All residences in Putnam County lie within one of the elementary, middle, and high school attendance areas. Any dispute concerning the location of residence near the boundary lines of two (2) adjacent attendance areas is resolved by the Superintendent, using the official attendance area map on file at the Board of Education office.

When family circumstances warrant, and if classroom space is available, parents may receive special permission from the Superintendent for their children to attend school out of their regular attendance zone.

Permission must be secured before enrolling a child out-of-zone either in Putnam or a neighboring county.
