is now accepting Out-of-County Student Applications for the 2020-21 School year

Please download the Out-of-County Student Application here.  Download the application, fill it out, and *return the completed application(s) to:

Gilchrist County School Board Office

310 NW 11th Avenue

Trenton, Florida  32693

*Applications submitted to the school(s) will not be processed.

Applications will be processed on a nondiscriminatory basis and shall be approved based on:

  • Space available in requested grade level at the requested school
  • Student being in good standing
  • Demands on school district including academic, discipline and attendance
  • Recommendation of school principal, superintendent, and school board

If a student’s out-of-county transfer application is approved, any change in good standing may result in the principal revoking that student’s privilege to attend Gilchrist County Schools.

NOTE: Students exhibiting discipline problems may have attendance privileges revoked immediately.  All other consideration for continued attendance for subsequent years shall be determined at the end of each school year.

No student shall be permitted to transfer, enroll, or be admitted to a Gilchrist County school if he/she has been expelled from another school district.

An out-of-county student may ride Gilchrist County school buses provided the student boards at the nearest approved but stop and the bus is not overcrowded.

When will I know if my out-of-county application has been approved?

While there is no specific deadline for submission, applications received by June 30, 2020, will be processed in July, and notifications will be made no later than two weeks before the start of school.  Applications received after June 30, 2020, will be accepted and processed in August.
