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.
Delay in Processing Requests (July 1-July 10)
Due to a district-wide FOCUS information system upgrade taking place July 1 through July 10, 2016, all student transfer requests submitted during that window will be held and processed the following week. We apologize for any inconvenience.

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".
|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|

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.
