REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS

2017-2018

All students must attend the school in the district where their parents/legal guardians reside unless they have an approved assignment to another school or program (e.g., School Choice). Applications for School Choice may be obtained by visiting the Educational Options website.  Completed applications must be submitted during specified application periods.

The school district expects that residence information submitted regarding students to be truthful and accurate, and  district forms pertaining to residence and household membership shall be verified under penalties of perjury.

Section 837.06, Florida Statutes, provides that, “Whoever knowingly makes a false statement in writing with the intent to mislead a public servant in the performance of his or her official duty shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree.”  Additionally, a person who knowingly makes a false declaration under penalties of perjury commits a felony of the third degree, pursuant to section 92.525, Florida Statutes. Providing school officials false information regarding your residence when enrolling your child may result in your child being withdrawn and/or reassigned to the appropriate zoned school, and referral of the matter to law enforcement for possible criminal prosecution. Additionally, falsification of this information may result in the permanent revocation of your child’s privilege to engage in extracurricular activities, including organized sports.

Parents/legal guardians are responsible for notifying the school principal if there is a change in residence or parental responsibility of the student within five (5) days, even if the parent thinks the student is still in the school’s zone.  Failure to give timely notice may result in a reassignment to the student’s zoned school and/or loss of eligibility for athletics and other activities.
