SCHOOL CHOICE WINDOW OPENS DEC. 2

 

MARION COUNTY – Parents may apply for their children to attend schools outside their zoned area through an online School Choice process starting December 2.

 

School Choice offers students multiple options including magnet schools, career academies, and special Choice options.

 

The deadline to submit applications and supporting documentation for School Choice reassignment is January 31, 2020 at 11:59PM.

 

Valid out-of-area reassignment reasons include safety, medical necessity, and professional courtesy.  All School Choice reassignments depend on space availability and proper documentation of eligibility requirements.

 

Students who received a placement for magnet schools, career academies, controlled open enrollment, or Special Choice Option for this current school year are not required to resubmit a transfer request for next school year as long as they will attend the same school.

 

Online access is available by visiting www.marionschools.net/schoolchoice.  This page links to www.applytomarionschools.com, a secured page to submit identifying information. 

 

For assistance, call 352.671.7743 or contact the School Choice and Student Assignments Office located at 1614 E. Ft. King Street in Ocala.
