Kindergarten registration opens Friday, May 1 with easy, online process

April 30, 2020 –  Kindergarten registration for Fall 2020 opens Friday, May 1.

Families can visit www.duvalschools.org/kindergarten to complete registration in three simple steps:

  • Step 1 – Find Your School
    Use the School Locator at www.duvalschools.org/locator to find your child’s attendance area school. If you have participated in the Magnet or Special Transfer Option Lottery and your student has already been assigned to a school, you may skip this step.
  • Step 2 – Create Your Student’s I.D.
    If your student is new to Duval County Public Schools, go online at www.duvalschools.org/focus to create a student ID number and upload required documents.
  • Step 3 – Complete Registration for Your Child’s Assigned School
    Your child’s school will send you an email confirmation that your child has been registered for kindergarten. This may take a few days. Follow the emailed directions to create a parent account and request to be linked to your incoming kindergarten student.

Note that the registration process is all online this year. Parents/guardians will upload the required documents instead of bringing them to the school. When a parent/guardian sets up the Student I.D., the school will contact them to complete the registration process.

Once your little ones are registered for kindergarten, make sure they’re ready! Check out our “Kindergarten Readiness Checklist.”
