    • Refer to your current Craighead County property tax statement
    • Go to the Arkansas County Data website by clicking here.  Click on (Search Real Estate Records)

    You will enter the address at which you reside (house number and street name only), click “SEARCH”.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to the school district.

  • You must attend the school in the resident district based on your property address unless you apply and are approved to register your child(ren) in a no-resident district by one of the following provisions:

    • Student Transfer - If you desire a transfer out of Nettleton Schools to attend a neighboring district  (even though you are zoned for Nettleton), you must complete a Petition for Transfer of Students form. A copy of the form can be found here.
    • Freedom of Choice - If you (a) desire to attend Nettleton Schools but live outside the district boundaries or (b) live inside the district boundaries and want to attend another Arkansas Public School, you must complete an Application for Transfer to a Non-resident District form, via Arkansas Statute 6-18-206, “Arkansas  Public School of Choice Act of 2015”. The Application for Transfer to a Non-Resident District form must be submitted to the non-resident district by May 1 for the following year. If you want to attend Nettleton Schools, please submit your application to the NPS Central Office by May 1.  A copy of the Application for Transfer to a Non-resident District form can be found here
  • On a case-by-case basis, Nettleton Schools allows parents to register based on a contract with a future completion date providing the estimated completion date. A current signed contract and picture ID is required. Once you have moved to a new residence, you will need to provide a current utility bill to the registrar at your child’s school. 

  • You will need to provide three new proofs of residence documentation (ie. lease agreement or gas/electric/water bill) to your child’s current school office. 

  • Due to the enrollment growth of our school district, some schools may exceed their capacity in particular grade levels. In this case, a student is overflowed to another Nettleton school location. Students are registered on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be added to the overflow list for a particular campus until the student’s registration has been completed. Bus transportation will be provided by Nettleton Schools for students who are overflowed (only for the current school year). Schools within Nettleton Schools follow the same general curriculum and have the same class size with comparable equipment and facilities. 

  • Most often, a school is assigned based on a student’s residence address. However, parent’s have a choice of three options for students at the elementary and intermediate level, grades PreK - 6th. Preferences may be noted on the form found here.

  • Check the Campus Zone Map to determine your school. You will be in either University Heights or Fox Meadow Zone for those in K-6. Those who live below the interstate and above on the west side of Windover will be at the Fox Meadow Campus. Everyone above the interstate excluding the west side of Windover, will be University Heights Campus. You have the choice to apply to attend the STEAM campuses using the forms on our registration page.
