A note from Mrs. Soretta Ralph, Executive Director - Student Enrollment:

Selecting a school for your child is an important decision. In Lee County, the system of one neighborhood, one school, has been replaced with an open-enrollment system. The open enrollment period runs mid-January through February for the upcoming school year.  What had become an annual ritual of redrawing school boundaries, moving children involuntarily from one school to another, to accommodate growth, has been replaced and now parents rank a variety of schools close to where they live. Once a student is enrolled in a school, parents have the assurance the student will remain at the school through the highest grade level offered unless one of the following occurs:

  • the student is determined in need of a special education program not available at the school of enrollment;
  • or the student moves into a different zone / sub-zone where the school of enrollment is no longer an option.
