The School District of Palm Beach County is a national leader in providing innovative learning opportunities to help students reach their highest potential. Our District provides families with a variety of school choice options and encourages parents/guardians to learn more about these opportunities. Explore the school choice options below that are available during the published application windows:
Request for Student ID: In order to submit a Choice application, a Palm Beach County Student ID is required. This request for a Student ID number is for the purposes of submitting a Choice application, only. If your child has previously been associated with any district school/charter school, Home Education or Exceptional Student Education (ESE), your child should already have been assigned a Student number. If you are seeking immediate enrollment in a school, please contact your zoned school directly. If at any time you choose to enroll your child in a School District of Palm Beach County school, you are required to complete a 'New and Returning Student Registration' form and provide the school with updated documents. Once a student ID is generated, you will be notified to continue with the application process. This process may take up to 7 business days.
Choice Programs: Choice programs offer the opportunity for students to discover their talents and explore their interests while focusing on academic rigor. Applications are accepted for assignment the following school year. In-house programs are available only to students residing within the school attendance zone. Selection of students is a lottery based process. All applicants must have a Student ID to submit an application. Click here to view the 2023-2024 Choice Booklet:Espanol, Kreyol, Portugues. The results of the 2023-2024 Choice lottery will be released after 4:00 pm on Friday, March 31, 2023. Late applications will be accepted March 13 - April 14, 2023. Late applications will not be considered in the March lottery. If an applicant meets the eligibility requirements for the program (if applicable), they will be added to the program's wait list. There is no guarantee of an assignment. Seats will be filled as they become available. Final results of late application submissions will be released after 4:00pm on July 24, 2023.
Open Enrollment: Open Enrollment allows students to apply for and attend a school outside their regular attendance zone. Pursuant to F.S. 1002.31, the SDPBC will allow a parent from any school district in the state of Florida whose child is not subject to a current expulsion or suspension, apply for an assignment to an available school for the following school year. Selection of students is a lottery based process. All students seeking an assignment into an available school should apply through Open Enrollment.
Student Reassignment: Parents/guardians may request a student reassignment to a school outside the student’s attendance area. All requests are reviewed pursuant to School Board Policy 5.015. Reassignments will be accepted for the following reasons only: Employee, Moving into Zone, Senior/Last Grade. All other requests can be submitted through the Open Enrollment Process
