Students entering kindergarten for the first time must be 5 years of age on or before Sept. 1. Pre-kindergarten and Head Start/Early Start programs are available to students who will not make the deadline.

Students transferring from another Florida county will be asked to present the following items upon registration at the school (please note special conditions in parentheses):

• Social Security number (if available)

• Proof of Florida residency (such as utility bill, lease agreement, etc.)

Students currently enrolled in Pasco County schools will already be in the district's computer system and should not have to present any additional material. If your child is moving from elementary to middle, however, or from middle to high, you may want to bring proof of address (such as an electric or other utility bill) in case it is needed.

Students moving from one school to another under the school choice program should be prepared to present their approved school choice application at the time of registration.

Special note for those born in Puerto Rico: The government of Puerto Rico has enacted a new law aimed at strengthening the issuance and usage of birth certificates to combat fraud and protect the identity of all people born in Puerto Rico. All Puerto Rico birth certificates issued before July 1, 2010 are invalid; citizens may request a new one through a simple mail process.
