Sumter District Controlled Open Enrollment Dates for the 2019-2020 School Year

***ONLY NEW APPLICANTS WISHING TO ATTEND OUT OF THEIR ZONED AREA OR STUDENTS THAT WILL BE PROMOTED UP TO THE NEXT SCHOOL LEVEL, ie: ELEMENTARY TO MIDDLE OR MIDDLE TO HIGH***

The Sumter District Controlled Open Enrollment (COE) program provides an opportunity for students to attend a school of their choice outside the student's zoned school, as long as the requested school is not at permanent program capacity and does not violate the class size amendment.  The parent/guardian of students wishing to attend a school outside their zoned area must submit a COE Application to the Sumter County School Board during the established open enrollment periods.  Submitting an application does not guarantee that the student will be approved to transfer to the requested school of choice.  If approved, the parent/guardian is responsible for transportation.

Sumter Residents - Applications Accepted March 11 - April 12, 2019

Out of County Residents - Applications Accepted April 29 - May 13, 2019

 COE applications will be available at all Sumter District Schools, the district office or a printable form will be available online when the next Controlled Open Enrollment window opens. 

Applications may be turned into any Sumter District School, the district office, faxed to 352-793-4180 or emailed to christy.gaines@sumter.k12.fl.us.
