• There are two requirements for moving on to high school. You must complete your elective course requests if you are going to Godby, as well as provide proof of address to Fort Braden.


    1. Elective Courses should be completed as soon as possible by 8th-grade students going to Godby. 

    It is imperative that parents and students follow along with the instruction sheet and video on the GHS webpage to be sure the process is completed correctly. 

    Please visit the GHS website (Guidance Tab) https://www.leonschools.net/domain/878 for the following helpful documents:


    How to: Use FOCUS Course Request Document (One-page instructions)

    Please reach out to your designated Guidance Counselor/ Administrator with any questions/concerns:

    Rising 9th Graders: Mrs. Blair or Coach Lanter (APC/APA)

    2. Proof of residence must be provided at both initial enrollment and upon promotion to the next level (from elementary to middle school or from middle to high school). 

    Policy 5112:  The parent/legal guardian must provide current proof of residence to obtain a schedule before the student can be promoted to the next level. They will NOT get to attend class until proof of residence has been provided, regardless if they are in the zone, on reassignment, or even an employee. PROOF IS A SCHOOL BOARD POLICY!
