Who Can Enroll a Student? Only a parent/legal guardian may register a student. Step-parents or other relatives require a notarized power of attorney signed by the legal parent/guardian or a court order.
The registering parent/legal guardian is required to provide two (2) forms of verification of residence at registration each year. For families who may be sharing housing by choice, there is a Shared Tenancy Affidavit that must be completed and notarized in order for the student to enroll and register in school. For students who may be living temporarily with another family, the in loco parentis form has been updated to reflect a maximum of 30 days. The form may not be used in lieu of the district's ELO and EPO request process to gain admittance into a school outside the student's zoned school.
Students transferring from another Brevard Public School to Cocoa High must withdraw from their current school before coming to CHS to register and provide two forms of proof of residency in their name that is zoned for Cocoa High School. Here is the list of approved proof of residency requirements
Students new to Florida or Brevard Public Schools (never attended a BPS school) can begin the registration process online. You must first create a Parent Portal account by clicking on this link: Parent FOCUS Portal. This portal will be used throughout your student's academic career to provide a real-time view of your student's grades, attendance, assessments, and important announcements.
