Does my child have to go to the assigned school?

We have a 4 year old, our daughter will be going to school in the next couple years. The house we are interested in purchasing is assigning the elementary school with a score of 5. There is an elementary school with a level of 10 only 1.1 miles away from the house though could we enroll our daughter there instead??

The Broward County School District allows for reassignment, but it is on a limited basis - and it depends on a few factors including their current enrollment.  You would need to go to the school district website and apply for reassignment and fill out the necessary paperwork.

I'm going to guess you're in Parkland, FL since it says Parkland next to the posting date.

If so, you're in the Broward County School District.  I'm pretty sure that they allow this.  Their website at www.browardcountyschools.com has the district boundary maps.  Then, if they're not in the "right" boundary set - call the county and double check with them.  There's usually paperwork that has to be done though.

Depending on what your area states as acceptable, this may vary. Some states allow the child to enroll in other school districts, as long as they have the proper transporation. I hope this helps!

Sure, "zoned" schools are assigned by district/area code, but you can enroll your child in any school.

Depending on where you live - in Plano ISD providing there is availability at the school you can, for a small fee and also be stating that you will be responsible for 100% of transportation needs, transfer your child.

Politics. I will try to explain this the best I can. Had family members in school administration. Population demographics,race,numbers all play a part. The short answer is to make all schools diverse. Kids are bused to different schools to "balance" the student population according to govt standards. If you have a bright child that will be bused to a low scoring school as well as being around a disruptive environment I would consider a private school. Some states have a voucher program to offset cost. I am by far no expert but just a general knowledge and do not have any kids. Wish you the best in finding a solution.

Asking us is a waste of time since we know nothing about where or what school. I suggest you call the school board in your area and ask.
