Transition Planning for Military Families

  • Welcome Military Families!

    Thank you for choosing to be a part of Team Duval. With Naval Air Station Jacksonville and Naval Station Mayport in Duval County, we are home to hundreds of military families and look forward to helping your children thrive academically. 

    The district’s Office of School Choice serves as the link between base commanders, military families, and our school. They will assist you with completing the initial enrollment process. Upon choosing to enroll here at Mayport Elementary, our military transitional staff will support you with completing your school-based registration process. Our student transitioning team has received specialized training in supporting our military students.  We look forward to welcoming you to Mayport Elementary, A Coastal Sciences Magnet School. For transitional enrollment support, please reach out to our school’s Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLC) and our Military enrollment lead, Carolyn Palacios, for school transitional planning and support.  Mrs. Carolyn Palacios can be reached by phone (904) 247-5988 or by email at palaciosc1@duvalschools.org to schedule your student lead transitioning tour of our school today. 

     

    Student Registration

    Families new to DCPS must create their Parent and Student FOCUS accounts by visiting the online enrollment process @ https://dcps.duvalschools.org/enroll

    We know that transitioning into a new school can be stressful, so please reach out to our Military transition team after you have completed the initial district enrollment process with the Office of School Choice. To further support and destress your family’s introduction into our learning community, active-duty service members, of transitioning military students, can request a one-on-one orientation session. The school military transition team will guide you through the enrollment process here at Mayport Elementary. To request our military student transitional support, please contact our school liaison by phone at 904-247-5988 or at palaciosc1@duvalschools.org
