STEP 1: Find Your Zoned School

Parents will first need to find their child’s zoned school by using the Zoned School Locator or calling Student Assignment, (727) 588-6210.

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, 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. (Forest Lakes is closed this summer due to a front office renovation.  You may choose to go to your nearest high school, as they are open all summer.  Schools are open Monday through Thursday, 7:30-5:30,  in the summer.  All school buildings are closed on Fridays in the summer.)  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 visit the assigned school and deliver the Required Documents: Birth certificate or other proof of identity/age, two documents proving residency, Florida Certificate of Immunization, physical examination certificate, child’s most recent report card (for students in grades 1-12), Individual Education Plan (if your child participates in exceptional student education) and Social Security number (optional).  (Our front office will re-open on Tuesday, August 4).
