Please Note: The deadline for submitting out-of-area school transfer requests for the 2015-2016 school year is February 15. For the greatest opportunity to be approved for a requested out-of-area school transfer for the 2015-2016 school year, applications must be received by February 15, 2015. Out of Area school transfers include those for safety, medical necessity, professional courtesy, diversity (majority to minority) and controlled open enrollment. Students who are currently reassigned to an out-of-area school and those students who are making new transfer requests for the 2015-2016 school year should apply by the February 15 deadline. All elective school reassignments are processed based on space availability and proper documentation of eligibility requirements. Controlled open enrollment will be offered at schools where enrollment is less than 90% of the total capacity of the school and will close when the school reaches 90% capacity. If more applications are received for open enrollment than space is available, spaces will be assigned by random drawing. School transfer forms are available from the guidance office at any Marion County Public School or from the District’s Student Assignments and Records office located at 512 SE Third Street in Ocala. For additional information, you may contact the office of Student Assignments at 671-7747.
Dunnellon Middle School has a need for volunteers. If you
have the time to volunteer, and work with our middle school
students please see Mrs.Whitmore at the Front Desk in
Building 1 for a volunteer application. When you volunteer
you are doing good for others and the community, which
provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a
volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity.
You can make a difference in children’s lives
