Kindergarten Registration Is Open Now

 

It's time to get ready for the new school year! Children entering kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year must be five years old on or before September 1, 2019. Follow these three, easy steps to register your child.

 

Step 1 - Find Your School

Use the School Locator at www.duvalschools.org/locator to find your child's neighborhood school or call Student Assignments at (904) 390-2144. 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 - Claim Your Seat

If your student is new to Duval County Public Schools, go online at www.duvalschools.org/enroll or go to your neighborhood school to create a parent account, a student ID number and register. If your child attended a Duval County Public School as a VPK student, was in the Teen Parent Program, received ESE services through Child Find or participated in the Magnet or Special Transfer Option Lottery and has already been assigned to a school, you may skip this step.

 

Step 3 - Complete Registration at Your Child's Assigned School

Visit your child's assigned school and deliver the required documents. Some elementary schools are closed during the summer months or have limited summer hours. Please register your child for kindergarten before the school year is over or call the school to get hours of operation during the summer.

1. Birth certificate or valid evidence of date of birth

 

2. Certificate of school entry health examination performed within one year of enrollment

 

3. Immunization record. For information about Florida immunization requirements, go to:
