  • New School District Information

    The Effingham County School System has experienced accelerated growth in the past several years. With this growth comes the challenge of taking proactive measures to maintain quality educational opportunities for students across the community. In an effort to balance our elementary and middle school student populations, the Effingham County School District has adopted the following new district lines across the county.

    Maps of the new districts are available at each of the elementary schools. Maps will be available at each middle school by Friday February 9th. Each school’s principal will notify parents how to review the maps and will gladly take any questions regarding individual concerns.

    Parents/guardians may review their proposed attendance zone by accessing (this link). Once the link is accessed, please enter your residential address as well as your student’s grade level for the 2018-2019 school year.
