Registering new students

Step 1: Register your child for school in the Santa Rosa County school system online through the FOCUS Family Portal.

Step 2: Once you have completed the on-line registration, you will need to contact your zoned school to make an appointment to complete the enrollment process.

(Note: For enrollment transfers out of zone, the registration process must be completed before any transfer request can be processed.)

Timeline: Most schools begin the kindergarten registration process at the end of April, lasting through the summer months.
