Formal approval to be released from Pasco County Schools is no longer required when requesting attendance to a neighboring county’s school district.

Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, the Florida Legislature enacted Section 1002.31, Florida Statutes, which directs each school district to develop a controlled open enrollment plan that allows a parent from any school district in the state to enroll that child in and transport his or her child to any public school that has not reached capacity, subject to the maximum class size requirements.


Additionally, students residing in the district, including charter school students, may not be displaced by a student from another district, seeking enrollment, under the controlled open enrollment process.


You should contact the school district in the county in which you would like to request enrollment for its specific policies and procedure regarding School Choice / Special Assignment.
