The parent/guardian’s physical residence determines the public school district and school zone your student will attend. Find your student’s assigned school zone by visiting the district websites at Okaloosa County School District or Santa Rosa County District Schools
Active duty members who are base residents with military-connected students now have the option to do school of choice. This means parents may send their student to any school in any district up to the school’s functional capacity. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide transportation for their student to and from school.
Rest assured, School Liaisons are working together to provide support to students and families throughout the world.
