New Student Registration Process
STEP 1: Find Your Zoned SchoolParents 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 SeatTo 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.
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).
