Enrollment Cap

Porter Ridge Middle and High Enrollment Cap

Cap was effective March 18, 2009 and will remain in effect indefinitely.

Porter Ridge Middle currently has 1462 students enrolled.

Students new to the Porter Ridge attendance area (enrolled on or after 3-18-09) will be reassigned to Piedmont Middle and Piedmont High. Union County Public Schools will provide transportation to Piedmont Middle and High.

Elementary students who move after March 18, 2009 into the Stallings, Poplin, Hemby Bridge, Sardis, Porter Ridge, and Porter Ridge portion of Fairview Elementaries will, upon completion of 5th grade, move to Piedmont Middle as long as the cap is in place.

Students who move domicile from one home in the current Porter Ridge attendance area to another home in the current Porter Ridge attendance and are already in attendance at Porter Ridge Middle or High will remain in the Porter Ridge schools as they are already occupying a seat there.

Children who are domiciled in the current Porter Ridge school district but have not availed themselves of a public education (i.e. are in private, religious, home, or other schools) must enroll in Piedmont Middle or High after the effective cap date.

NC Wise Managers at Stallings, Poplin, Hemby Bridge, Sardis, Porter Ridge Elementary, and Porter Ridge portion of Fairview will keep a separate spreadsheet of students in current grades 1-5 as to the enrollment date. They will also keep a list of kindergarteners who enroll on or after September 8, 2009 as these kindergarteners would also fall under the cap. If the cap is still in effect when said child is ready for middle school, any child who enrolled on or after March 18, 2009 (or on or after September 8, 2009 for kindergarteners) will attend Piedmont Middle or High.

NC Wise Managers at Piedmont Middle and High will keep a separate spreadsheet of students who enroll in their schools by grade and enrollment date. They will have enrolling students to complete a transportation form.  The NC Wise Manager will then fax the transportation form to Mandy Benton at 704-283-9873.  The NC Wise Manager should indicate on the form Porter Ridge Capping. When the cap is lifted, students will return to Porter Ridge, possibly by enrollment date.

Students who are long-term suspended from either Porter Ridge Middle or High may return to the school at the end of the long-term suspension.

Students who drop out of Porter Ridge High (or Porter Ridge Middle if they reach the age of 16) and wish to re-enroll must re-enroll at Piedmont Middle or High.
