School Choice Information-Frozen Schools

The Pasco County Schools school choice open enrollment (application) period is underway and we’ve received several questions related to “Frozen” schools and special programs.  If you have questions about school choice, please direct them to the district’s Educational Options office, schoolchoice@pasco.k12.fl.us.  You also may go to www.pascoschools.org and click on the school choice banner for more information.  Please do not contact principals by phone or on social media; they don’t make decisions about school choice applicants’ acceptance. 

The school district reviews each application and takes into consideration available seating, student education plans, and special programs.  A school’s “frozen” status does not prevent families form submitting school choice requests for those schools.  We’ve seen some misleading information on social media about this, and need to set the record straight.  If a student has an individual education plan or an education plan that calls for certain accommodations, like self-contained gifted, the student will receive those accommodations, but there is no guarantee that the services will be provided at the student’s preferred school.  If space is not available, the student could be assigned to another school with that program.  While district transportation is not provided for regular school choice students, all eligible students with the above-described education plans are provided with school district transportation.

Safety Concerns

safety; firstTraffic Concerns: We all need to ensure we allow ourselves adequate time to arrive on campus in a safe manner. The improper passing (cutting into the turning lane) has now caused accidents. There will now be law enforcement intervention to help correct this problem, which could result in a $164 fine, and three points on your license. The goal is the safe drop off of students on campus. Please all work together on this.
