    VPK Late Application Submission Steps

    Parents of students new to Duval County Public Schools, must create a student number and parent account.  Parents of students who have had previous engagement with the district through ESE services, Head Start, or the Teen Parent program, do not need to create a student number.  However, all parents are encouraged to create a parent account.  Click here to create the student number and/or parent account. 

    Once the student number and/or parent account is created, please email two proofs of address to dcpsec@duvalschools.org.  In the email, please be sure to provide the student's name and/or student number.  Once the address has been verified and the parent account is approved, the parent will receive an email within 1-2 business days with the application attached.  Parents are encouraged to complete the application and submit to dcpsec@duvalschools.org as soon as possible.  Once received and processed, parents will receive an email with the status of the application.  Once approved, the school will contact the parent to complete the registration process.  Please note:

    ■ Parents will be able to select up to three VPK programs, in order of preference, that the student is eligible to attend.  Parents are encouraged to check seat availability at school sites by clicking here.
