Frequently Asked Questions

How do I continue with the online application once I’ve selected the “Save and Continue Later”?

  • Log back in to the Focus Parent Portal.
  • Under Forms, click on the Online Application (again)
  • Click on the APPLY FOR ENROLLMENT (again)
  • Since you’ve already started the application for your child, click on the Continue Application tab and then click on Log In. This takes you back to the application you already started. You then pick up where you left off.

How do I resubmit the required registration documents that were determined to be ‘Invalid’?

After you submit your registration application online, if the district determines one or more of the required documents you uploaded are ‘invalid’ (do not meet the district requirements), you will receive an email stating which documents are invalid and the steps to take to resubmit these documents.

  • Log into the Focus Parent Portal
  • Select the child on the left
  • Select Child Info
  • Select Student Registration Documents

Essentially those steps will direct you to the area pictured below on your portal where you can resubmit all of the necessary documents.

Invalid Documents

Why did I not receive my confirmation email after completing the online registration?

If you’ve completed all of the necessary steps, you will eventually click on a ‘Submit’ button. The ‘Submit’ button is the final step you take to ‘send’ your application to the district. Once you ‘Submit’, you should receive an email that confirms we’ve received your online registration. This email will be ‘From:’ FOCUS/SIS. After you ‘Submit’, if you don’t find that email within a few minutes, you might first check your SPAM or junk email folder. If after checking there, and if after you’re sure you’ve clicked on the ‘Submit’ button but you still do not receive your confirmation email, please contact [email protected].

As this is a new process for many of us, sometimes Parents who may have used the “Save and Continue Later” option, are uploading the documents in an area we use for the resubmission of invalid documents (image below). DO NOT after you’ve selected “Save and Continue Later” upload your documents there.

Completion Email

Why am I getting the “Application in Progress” portal alert?

If you are seeing an “Application in Progress” alert for your child, it means that you have not yet completed the entire registration process. This alert will disappear once you complete the entire process and ‘Submit’ the application. Once you do click on the ‘Submit’ button at the end of the process, you should receive, within a few minutes, an email that serves as your submission confirmation (receipt).

Application in Progress

Why am I getting a ‘duplicate student’ message (error) when trying to register my student online?

This message will appear when a parent is attempting to register a new student and the system determines that a student already exists in our system with the exact same first and last name and exact same date of birth.

If you encounter the ‘duplicate student’ message, email the Student Enrollment Office

Need to Visit the Student Enrollment Office?

The Student Enrollment office accepts appointments and walk-in registrations Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. through QLess. Parents can now register their place in line virtually and know exactly how long the wait is before ever leaving home or work.

**Please note that if you join the line virtually, your wait time may be less than the time it takes to travel to the district office from your home/work. It is recommended to be at a nearby location when you join the line

Parents can also make appointments to see a Student Enrollment Specialist at a day and time convenient to them.

The office is located at 2855 Colonial Blvd. in Fort Myers near the south entrance of the Lee County Public Education Center.
