If my child starts school at the beginning of the year and we move to a home that is zoned for a different school, can she stay at the school she started the year at? We will be staying in St Johns County, just moving school zones.

I believe the answer is yes. All of FL recently moved to an open enrollment so I would assume that she could stay at the previous school. Someone else might be able to cite hard and fast evidence.

We moved from Jax to SJC in the middle of the 2017 school year and we decided to keep out kids in the Duval school (wait what?!?!?!) until end of the year and there was no issues other than the crazy drive to and from school twice a day.

Thank you!
Did you notify the JAX school that you moved? Was there a procedure that had to be followed for that?

According to my wife, the child can stay in the school in which s/he started the school year until the end of the year. After that, you'll need to apply via open enrollment if that particular school you moved from has openings the following year. Open enrollment is a lottery system where St Johns county residents take precedence over non-county applicants.

We're thinking about moving within PVB and we're running into the same situation as you (our son starts kindergarten next week). We prefer Ocean Palms but the area we want to move to is zoned for PV/PV Rawlings. We'll likely stay in our current location.

Following link will give you more info on open enrollment and the schools that have openings in St Johns County:

https://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/coe/

Once you get into a certain elementary school via open enrollment, the child can attend that school until she moves onto the next level school (middle school) you're zoned for. No need to reapply every year. Currently, there are no K-8 schools/high schools in St Johns county that have openings via open enrollment.

I can't remember if we did any formal notification but a few of the teachers and administrative types knew we moved.
