Can I enroll my child if we haven't settled on our house in Howard County or if our house is being built?

A resident student whose parents a contract to buy, build, or lease a home in a different school attendance area other than that of the student’s designed school may request reassignment to a school in the projected attendance area. Families have 90 calendar days from the first date of attendance to be settled in their new residence. If the student is not in the projected home within 90 calendar days of the student’s attendance, an extension may be granted. If the request for an extension is not approved, the student will be returned to the original designated school.

A non-resident student whose parents are residing out of county may attend school for up to 90 calendar days tuition free. After 90 calendar days, parents must apply for an extension. If the extension is granted, tuition will be assessed beginning on the first day of the extension. If the extension is not granted, the student will be required to attend school in the district of the current residence.
