Controlled Open Enrollment for 2020-2021

Polk County Public Schools is moving forward with controlled open enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year.

The process of “controlled open enrollment” gives students throughout Florida an opportunity to attend a school other than the zoned school.

Again, this enrollment opportunity relates to next school year: the 2020-2021 school year.

During controlled open enrollment, parents seeking additional choice options for their students can apply for placement in any school in the state that has not reached capacity and still has seats available.

We will begin accepting applications for controlled open enrollment at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, April 6.

Applications must be submitted online through parent portal. The deadline to submit an application is April 24.

Parents of students approved for transfers through the controlled open enrollment window will be notified by email after the enrollment period ends.
