IMPORTANT - New students in kindergarten, sixth or ninth grade who enroll in Pinellas County Schools will be assigned to a zoned school. All other new students will be assigned to their zoned school on a space-available basis.
STEP 1: Find Your Zoned School
Parents will first need to find their child’s zoned school by using the School Zone Locator or calling the school at 727-893-2187.
STEP 2: Reserve a Seat
To reserve a seat at a zoned school, use the online Student Reservation System (SRS) located on the district website, www.pcsb.org. You can use any computer, including a school computer, to reserve a seat. To use the Student Reservation System, you will need a PCS Portal User ID and password. To get a new PCS Portal User ID and password, visit any school. Make sure to bring a valid ID (Driver's License, State ID card, Passport/Visa, Military ID or Green Card). If you already have a User ID and password for another child, you do not have to obtain new ones.
STEP 3: Register
The final step is to CALL 727-893-2187 AND MAKE AN APPOINTMENT to deliver the list of required documents and complete registration paperwork.
Due to social distancing, **PLEASE CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT. **
Face masks are required, and the number of people in the office will be limited.
