The Student Assignment First Application period (Batch 1) for the 2014/2015 school year is scheduled for Tuesday, January 21st through Friday, March 28th, 2014.

 To better serve parents during the start of Batch 1, Student Assignment will stay open from 8am-4:30pm, Tuesday, January 21st through Friday, January 31st, 2014.

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 Friday, January 17th, 2014 pre-printed applications will be sent to parents of Pre-K students attending Lee County Public Schools who are eligible for kindergarten for 2014/15, as well as current fifth- and eighth-grade students who currently attend a Lee County Public School.

Parents of children who will be five on or before September 1st should apply for kindergarten for the 2014/15 school year.

Parents need to register their child even if they have an older child already in school - assignments are not automatic.
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 - it is unnecessary for families to stand in long lines when Batch 1 starts.

In addition, if families received a pre-printed application, they are strongly encouraged to apply online via the Districts' Web site

This option is not available to new students to the District or students currently attending a charter school.
