Guidelines and Procedures
Student Registration, Student Assignment, School Choice and School Reassignment
Student assignment in the district occurs under the direction of School Board Policy 5.20. The Office of School Choice and Charter Schools in the Office of Accountability and Choice is responsible for carrying out activities related to this policy.
Any student residing in the district shall be assigned to a school for attendance by the Superintendent or designee. All students, unless otherwise provided by School Board Rule or authorized by the School Board, shall attend the school serving their residential attendance zone. No student whose legal residence is outside the boundaries of the County may be enrolled in any district school without the approval of the School Board, except under the provisions of Florida Statutes. A student’s residence is defined as the residence/domicile of his/her parent(s), legal guardian, or other such people as defined by any order issued by a court of competent jurisdiction. If divorced parents have joint custody of a child, they must use one address as the legal residence for enrollment purposes.
