The Student Assignment First Application period (Batch 1) for the 2014-15 school year is scheduled Jan. 21 through March 28.
To better serve parents during the start of Batch 1, Student Assignment will stay open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The first application period is for:
- Any student entering 6th or 9th Grade
- Kindergarten and New students to the District.
In addition, students currently enrolled in a school may participate if they want to change schools next year.
On Jan. 17, pre-printed applications were sent to parents of Pre-K students attending Lee County Public Schools who are eligible for kindergarten, as well as current fifth- and eighth-grade students.
Parents of children who will be 5 on or before Sept. 1 should apply for kindergarten. Parents need to register their child even if they have an older child already in school.
Student assignment utilizes a lottery system. A family who registers the first day of Batch 1 has the same chance of getting a school as that of a family who registers the last day of Batch 1. Families are encouraged to continue to attend open houses and tour schools before completing their final school choice rankings.
If families received a pre-printed application, they are encouraged to apply online via the districts' Web site (studentassignment.leeschools.net). This option is not available to new students to the district or students currently attending a charter school.
Parents and students may also visit schools during open house. Parents may visit the district's Web site or call the school to find out the open house date and time.
Student Assignment offices are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the following locations:
- Lehigh Acres Office, 1262 Wings Way, Suite 207, Lehigh Acres
