Welcome to School Choice Services of OCPS 


The Office of School Choice Services assists in increasing awareness among parents and other community members about voluntary public school choice options in Florida.
School Choice means providing parents the opportunity to be involved in selecting the school their child will attend. Florida's Independent Education and Parental Choice initiative hopes to allow all of Florida's children the opportunity to receive the highest quality of education available to them.
Our goal is to provide services and assistance needed to help children receive the education that best meets their needs.






A lottery was held on April 9 for seats available at selected schools. Students who were selected in this lottery will recieve an email sent to  the parent email address listed on the application byApril 11, 2014. 

If your child was not selected in this lottery, you will recieve an email sent to the parent email address listed on the application by May 1, 2014 with your child's number for the wait list at the first choice school.  

 Please check your spam folder as sometimes OCPS email is misdirected, especially on gmail and yahoo. 




What if I missed the application deadline? 

 If you missed the application deadline of February 15, 2014, you will be able to request to be placed on the wait list for a magnet program beginning May 1, 2014. Details for requesting placement will appear on this website on   May 1, 2014.
