School Choice Applications Open March 1

The School Choice options for our families are increasing for the 2022–2023 school year. In an effort to streamline the process and enable the District to efficiently fill available seats, this will be an online process.


Beginning Tuesday, March 1, 2022, five online applications will go live. The School Choice Options are:

  • Controlled Open Enrollment
  • Controlled Open Enrollment Due to Rezoning (rezoned Buddy Taylor Middle School and Flagler-Palm Coast High School students)
  • Program of Choice for Flagler-Palm Coast High School (International Baccalaureate or Fire Leadership) and Matanzas High School (Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education “AICE” or Law and Justice)
  • Hardship Waiver
  • Employee Transfer Request

We encourage all of our families interested in School Choice to visit the School Choice section of our District website to familiarize themselves with the programs and the deadline to submit an application. Again, the forms will not be available until Tuesday, March 1.


Please understand, for Controlled Open Enrollment, should the number of requests exceed the number of available seats at a school, then assignments will be made through a lottery process. Siblings will be provided a preference in the lottery. Transfers are granted through completion of the highest grade at the school.


Should you have any questions about our School Choice process, feel free to use the Let's Talk! program. Simply post your questions under the Student Services section.
