The Online Application Window for All Grades for the 2015-2016 School Year Has Closed

Thank you for your interest in the School Choice online application process. Throughout the application window, our office received and processed 1370 high school applications, 617 middle school applications, and 801 elementary school applications.

If you arrived at this site in hopes of being able to submit an online application, the window of time in which to do that has unfortunately closed.

However, the Office of School Choice is still accepting student transfer requests in cases of family hardships, as outlined in School Board policy. For more information pertaining these types of transfers, you may visit the School Choice website (, call one of the contact numbers listed on this site, or come by our office at 30 East Texar Drive, Pensacola, FL 32503 any weekday from 7:30a until 5:00p.

Students who are new to the Escambia County School District may explore options for student transfers by contacting or visiting the Office of School Choice.



Geographical Zoning Choices for Elementary Schools

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 a shared geographical zone. Grouping our district's elementary schools into these zones enables our transportation department to still 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). Then review the Geographical Zoning chart below to determine which elementary schools are within your zone.
