New Alachua County Student School Enrollment

  • Enrolling in School 

     Click the link above for more information about enrollment and the link to the online enrollment application.

    The Office of Student Assignment assigns school to property parcels based on geographic location within the county.  Each parcel is assigned to an elementary, middle and high school.  These are referred to as zoned schools.  Students residing on a given property must attend the school to which the property is assigned.

    Parents may apply to have their students attend schools other than their zoned schools.  This is managed through the school choice/controlled open enrollment process, offered each spring for the following school year. Any school choice applications received after the deadline are placed at the bottom of the waiting list and processed only as time permits. 

    Parents who miss the school choice window or experience unforeseen circumstances may apply for a zoning exception based on specific hardship criteria.  Requests not based on hardship reasons are to be treated as a request for school choice/controlled open enrollment.  Zoning exceptions are granted for a single school year and must be renewed annually.  Exceptions can be revoked at any time for student disciplinary problems, excessive absences or tardiness.

    New residents or families with questions about what school your child is zoned to attend - please contact the District's Office of Student Assignment/Zoning Office at zoning@gm.sbac.edu or (352) 955-7700 to verify school attendance zone information.
