Can we cross over from Chatham County to Wake County to attend elementary school?
We currently live in Chatham Cty, just across the Wake County line. Wake County public schools are closer to our home than the Chatham Cty public schools. Is it possible to cross over to Wake County? Is there a fee for doing so?
Call the central office for Wake County and ask about out-of-district requirements. School districts are usually funded by average daily attendance. That means crossing over to another county means Wake County collects a per diem for your child that would be funding Chatham City. It is possible but it may be costly.
