School Choice

General Student Transfer Requests for 2017-2018 and 2018-2019

The Office of School Choice is now accepting general student transfer requests for both the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years. If your child does not currently reside in the attendance zone of the particular school in which you are interested, you may submit a completed and signed REQUEST FOR STUDENT TRANSFER (found in the "FORMS" section of our site), along with current proof of residence (a water or electricity bill in your name) and a valid photo ID, to the Office of School Choice.


Approval of transfer requests hinges upon multiple factors, including school capacities, academic, attendance, and behavior records of the applicant, and, in some cases, deadlines.


For more information regarding the student transfer process, please peruse the School Choice website, or give our office a call at 469-5580.


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.


If your child is enrolling in our school district for the first time, click here to pre-register. (http://ecsd-fl.schoolloop.com/focus/enrollment)

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 McArthur Elementary
Pine Meadow Elementary Pleasant Grove Elementary
Scenic Heights Elementary Suter Elementary
(*): Based upon actual enrollment numbers sourced on December 1, 2017. Next anticipated revision: July 2, 2018.


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.
