A screenshot of the Alachua County Council online survey about school rezoning

Provide Input About School Rezoning: PTA Survey

The Alachua County School Board is planning a district-wide, comprehensive rezoning for all school levels in the next few years. The goal is for the changes to take effect during the 2022/2023 school year. As a result, many families in Alachua County may be zoned for schools that are different from their current schools. Complete ACCPTA’s rezoning survey to share your thoughts confidentially.

Note: this survey is not affiliated with the Alachua County School District, although summary results will be shared with them.

For a limited time: FREE medical services for children at the SW Health Clinic

Does your child fall in the insurance gap? In other words, does your child neither qualify for Medicare/Medicaid nor receive private insurance coverage? If so, we have funding to provide basic physicals and basic dental checkups and services for children at the clinic. This funding is only for children, and the services must be performed at the SW Health Clinic. Undocumented children are eligible to receive these services! Visit the SW Health Clinic page to learn more.
