Student Assignment Fort Myers Florida

Parents or guardians may request one transfer for their child to attend another school in their Choice Zone at certain times by reapplying through the school selection and student assignment process. Such transfers are subject to the same factors affecting initial school assignments.

The parent or guardian must make any request for transfer at a student assignment office, indicating their ordered preference of the schools in the Choice Zone for which they are eligible.

Absent extenuating circumstances, only one such transfer is permitted during an academic year. In addition, if a transfer request is made during the first fifteen days of each school year, the student will immediately be removed from the eligibility pool for any requested school. In-zone transfers for KG through 8th grade students are not permitted during FTE reporting periods, county-wide testing dates, three weeks prior to the end of the first semester, or the last quarter of each school year. In-zone transfers for all high school students will be limited to the end of the first semester. Transfers will be permitted for students in grades 9 through 12 that win a seat on an eligibility pool during the first 15 days of school.

Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, incoming seniors will be restricted from exercising their annual transfer after the end of the first semester of their junior year.

High School Students in grades 9th, 10th and 11th may apply for a transfer.   The application period is December 4th - December 15th, 2017.  Parents will need to submit an application to the Student Assignment Office during this two week period.  Students will be notified on December 19th, 2017 if a seat was available for their transfer.

Parents! Early Enrollment for the next school year begins late Janaury and closes late March. Don't miss having the best chance to get one of your top choices for schools. Apply at the closest Student Assignment Office.
