Student Registration and Enrollment

Gainesville City School System is pleased to offer school choice enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year. We have established elementary zone clusters in order to improve our transportation services. Gainesville City Schools will provide transportation services within your assigned cluster ONLY. The Gainesville City Schools Board of Education reserves the right to establish enrollment limits in all grades, classes, and/or programs. Therefore, there must be spaces available within the established cap amount for each grade level. Priority for classroom space will be provided to all City of Gainesville resident students first.
