2016 School Choice EXPO Approaches

The 2016 School Choice EXPO will be held on November 1, 2016 at Booker T. Washington High School. This event is a perfect time for interested families to ask questions and learn more about the various academies and programs offered at our schools. 


The EXPO will feature representatives from every middle and high school academic and career academy, Pensacola High School's International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, West Florida High School, Brown Barge Middle School, and N.B. Cook Elementary. Informational tables will be manned by students and staff from each school, allowing EXPO attendees interactive opportunities to learn more about programs of their interest. School District offices, community partners, and organizations will be on hand to provide information about services as well.


While the event runs from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., families are encouraged to come and go as they please during the EXPO. For interested middle school and high school applicants, computer kiosks will be available for attendees who wish to submit an online application that evening. The online elementary application will be made available in February 2017. For more information regarding eligibility criteria, please visit our online application site at www.escambiaschools.org/choice.

Entering our schools for the first time?

If your student is entering our schools for the first time, please take a moment to pre-register your child in our student information system. This will make the formal registration process (and School Choice process, where applicable) much faster for your family.

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
Beulah Elementary Blue Angels Elementary
Brentwood Elementary Cordova Park Elementary
Ferry Pass Elementary Hellen Caro Elementary
Lipscomb Elementary Myrtle Grove Elementary
Pleasant Grove Elementary Sherwood Elementary
(*): Based upon actual enrollment numbers sourced on May 2, 2016. Next anticipated revision: December 2, 2016.


The Escambia County School District revises and publishes its school capacities biannually, at a minimum. Click here to view the complete listing of capacities for our district's traditional elementary, middle, and high schools.
