"Enrolling Students to Succeed"

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. 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 assigned school;
  • or the student moves into a different zone / sub-zone where the enrolled school is no longer an option.
