Student Enrollment & Registration

In accordance with the Federal School Choice Mandate in 2017, Florida Statute 1002.31 was passed which  required each district school board to allow a parent from any school district in the state whose child is not subject to a current expulsion or suspension to enroll his or her child in and transport his or her child to any public school that has not reached capacity in the district, subject to the maximum class size.
