Geographic Zoning Options May Assist Parents With Transportation Options

In an effort to provide parents with more options for their elementary school students, the Office of School Choice allows parents to choose to send their students to another school within their shared geographical zone. Grouping our district's elementary schools in this way enables our transportation department to better meet the needs of most families. If a parent requests to send a student to a different elementary school within the same zone, the district provides a bus transportation option for the student on a space available basis.


To explore this option, first find your residentially zoned school based upon your current residential address. (Click here to use the district's "Find Your School" tool.) Then review the Geographical Zoning chart below to determine which elementary schools are within your zone.

Highlighted schools above are currently on the Escambia County School District's Overcapacity list. 

School Capacities Published

The relationship between a school's enrollment numbers and its student workstations determines its capacity. A school's capacity designation is key to the School Choice process, as it informs decision-making in regards to requests to place out-of-zone students at any given school. If a school's enrollment exceeds its established utilization rate, the school is deemed "over-capacity". While the Office of School Choice does not discourage families from submitting student transfer requests, our office does not typically approve requests to place students at over-capacity schools.


The following schools are currently designated as "over-capacity". 


Over-Capacity Schools*
Tate High
Bailey Middle Ferry Pass Middle
Beulah Elementary Blue Angels Elementary
Cordova Park Elementary Hellen Caro Elementary
Lipscomb Elementary Pine Meadow Elementary
Pleasant Grove Elementary Scenic Heights Elementary
