Controlled Open Enrollment

Controlled Open Enrollment

Clay County School District strives to provide parents an opportunity to choose the desired school for their children. In addition to the established attendance zone, Special Pupil Requests due to hardship and career academies, the Clay County School District will provide additional options for school assignment based on Controlled Open Enrollment in accordance with Florida Statute 1002.31. Controlled Open Enrollment (COE) provides parents and legal guardians of children and youth entering grades K-12 the opportunity to seek enrollment in a school other than the zoned school of attendance. Under this statute, parents/legal guardians currently residing in any school district in the State of Florida may select schools from a list identified by the Clay County School District as having available seats based upon published guidelines.

Transportation Options

Clay County District Schools does not offer transportation to schools outside of a student’s zoned school.

For other transportation opportunities parents can look into

The Florida Department of Education offers transportation scholarships of $750 to eligible students that attend a Florida public school that is different from the school to which the student was assigned, if the school district does not provide the student with transportation to/from the school.
