Starting in the 2017-18 school year, Florida parents will be able to send their children to any school in the state due to the new education Bill (HB 7029). In order for parents and students to take advantage of open enrollment, the school must have room, parents must provide transportations, and transfer students cannot be under suspension orders or expulsion.

Why is the quality of a school district an important factor for homebuyers?

Other than parents investing in better education for their children, there are a number of reasons to buy a home in great school districts. Higher market demand and property values, resilience in economic downturns, and the ability to sell faster are a few benefits of purchasing a home zoned for top rated schools.
