FAQ King George County Schools - Variances

Do I need to fill out a new Variance Request Form if I was approved in the 2019-20 school year?No. To streamline our variance request procedure, KGCS will extend to the 2020-21 school year your existing variance approval for your student(s). If I am a new family registering in King George and I am requesting a variance do I need to fill out a Variance

Request Form for 2020-21 school year?
Yes. Please contact your zoned school of residence to complete the registration process. You will submit your variance request to the registrar at that time. 

If my student(s) is in the gifted or special education program at King George Elementary School, do I need to fill out a Variance Request Form for a sibling to attend in the 2020-21 school year?
If your son or daughter's sibling was not approved in the 2019-20 school year for a variance, you will need to fill out a Variance Request Form for the 2020-21 school year.

If I had a student(s) attending a school via an approved variance for the 2019-20 school year, and the approved student has a sibling that I prefer to attend the same school, do I need to submit a variance request for the 2020-21 school year? 
Yes. The sibling’s variance request will be approved space permitting.

Where do I find the Variance Request Form for 2020-21 school year?
