The School District of Lee County and Lee County School Board have completed and approved a new proximity-based student assignment plan for elementary students. The plan increases the number of school assignment zones to decrease the number of schools’ families have to choose from.

Now that the plan is in place, open enrollment for elementary schools is from Monday, February 13, 2023 to Friday, March 10, 2023. 

Elementary families are encouraged to determine what schools are in their new proximity zone through an interactive map on the District’s website at https://www.leeschools.net/our_district/departments/academic_services/student_enrollment/elementary_open_enrollment. Parents then must make a choice for their child:

  • Stay in their current school
  • Transportation will not be provided if the school is outside the proximity zone
  • Enter the student assignment lottery for a new school in their proximity zone

Students enrolled in a school in their proximity zone who want to stay in that school do not need to take action. Students enrolled in a school outside their zone who wish to stay in that school must confirm their choice to provide transportation through their FOCUS Parent Portal. Students who want or need to enter the assignment lottery for a school in their new zone must use their FOCUS Parent Portal to rank their choices.

Families can create a FOCUS Parent Portal or log into their existing one at https://www.leeschools.net/our_schools/focus

Incoming kindergarten students should also use this open enrollment period to register for the 2023/2024 school year and/or rank their school choices for the assignment lottery through their FOCUS Parent Portal.

Elementary school students transferring from charter or private schools, or new to the District, must visit the Student Enrollment Office at 2855 Colonial Blvd. in Fort Myers before March 10, 2023 to register for the student assignment lottery.
