Student Online Registration  

Skyward logo

Registration for the 2018-2019 school year is now open for parents of enrolled students. Parents/legal guardians can register their student(s) by logging onto the Skyward Family Access portal or by completing the paper forms which have already been mailed. This year we are requesting that you use the online registration as it enables you to update all student and family information, sign off on all required permission forms, and makes the process more smooth. If you have questions about online registration, email skywardhelp@fsdb.k12.fl.us
