Okaloosa County School District is in the process of transitioning to a new Student Information System called FOCUS. To complete the online portion of the registration process on FOCUS, you will need to use your child’s legal name and have a valid address. Please use the School Site Locator to see which schools you are zoned for.
Florida law provides that any child who will be 5 on or before September 1st is eligible for kindergarten that school year. Parents registering their students who are NEW to the district (K-12) for the 2022 - 2023 School Year will begin by registering in the Focus Parent Portal. You may complete this on your own device with internet access or you may use the registration kiosk in the front office of the enrolling school.
FOCUS is new to the Okaloosa County School District so parents will not have access to the amazing tools FOCUS offers until September 2022. If you have any questions during or about the registration process, please visit our website www.okaloosaschools.com/page/focus which includes a Q&A forum, a rollout timeline, and a sneak peek of the new software. You can also email FOCUSHELP@okaloosaschools.com or call the enrolling school with your questions. School contact numbers can be found at www.okaloosaschools.com in the Schools link.
CURRENTLY ENROLLED OKALOOSA COUNTY STUDENTS
Students who currently attend an Okaloosa County school are automatically enrolled for the next school year and do not need to register through the portals. For more information, families can call the school at which they are seeking to register.
