New Student Registration
Due to the physical distance measures recommended by CDC for Broward County Public Schools Deerfield Beach offers New Students Online Registration for the 2020-2021 Academic School Year.
For additional assistance, parents need to request a New Student Registration Appointment through the appointment calendar or call 754-322-0667. Visitors must have appointments before arriving to Deerfield Beach High School for in-person assistance on campus. These openings can be made for Monday – Friday during school hours (8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.)
**NOTE: This process is not for current students as they should meet with a School Counselor for course selections or Deerfield’s incoming zoned ninth grade students as information will rollover from the middle school.
Find out if Deerfield Beach High School is assigned to your home address using Find My School Locator. Parents must provide their specific street address and their child’s grade level, and the app will determine the correct school their child is supposed to attend.
EVIDENCE OF AGE
Submit one form of verification of the student’s age:
1. Official Birth Certificate, if available. If such certificate is not available, the following forms of evidence are acceptable:
a. Certificate of Baptism, A duly attested transcript of a religious document showing date of birth accompanied by an affidavit sworn to by the parent.
b. Insurance Policy, An insurance policy on the child’s life, which has been in force for at least two years.
c. Passport, A passport or certificate of arrival in the U.S. showing the age of the child.
d. Sworn Affidavit, An affidavit sworn to by the parent, accompanied by a certificate from the county health officer, that he/she believes the child to be of required school age.
EVIDENCE OF CUSTODY/GUARDIANSHIP
If the student is residing with someone other than the parent or legal guardian, the following provisions shall apply:
1. If the parent lives within the tri-county area (Dade, Broward, or Palm Beach), the parent must provide documentation of custody by an appropriate state agency such as the Department of Children and Families or the court. Applications for temporary custody of minor children by extended family can be obtained at the family unit office in the Broward County courthouse.
2. If a parent lives within the tri-county area and the student lives in a residence licensed by the Department of Children and Families, the student may be registered and enrolled in the school that serves that licensed residence.
3. If the parent lives outside the tri-county area (Dade, Broward, or Palm Beach), the school will accept a notarized statement from the parent identifying the person assuming responsibility for the supervision of the child.
EVIDENCE OF MEDICAL EXAMINATION
Students, grades PreK-12, entering Florida Schools for the first time must present evidence of a medical examination performed within the twelve months prior to their initial enrollment (F.S. 1003.22). For purposes of this rule (6) only, enrollment shall be defined as the day the student is brought to school to fill out necessary forms (i.e. registration) for the purpose of becoming a Broward County Public School student. It is not necessarily the first day of class.
PROOF OF IMMUNIZATION
Florida law requires that, prior to a child’s attendance in a public school in prekindergarten through 12th grade, parents shall provide a Florida Certificate of Immunization form (DH 680). The Florida Department of Health shall determine the required immunizations. Required immunizations are outlined annually in a state publication titled “Immunization Guidelines: Florida Schools, Child Care Facilities and Family Day Care Homes.”
The original DH 680 form is a permanent school record and should be filed in the student’s cumulative health record. Students may attend school without a Florida Certificate of Immunization if they have a religious exemption (form DH 681), a temporary exemption (form DH 680 Part B) or a medical exemption (form DH680, Part C). Principals will issue a 30-day temporary exemption for all students except those who transfer from one Broward County public school to another Broward County Public school.
PROOF OF RESIDENCE
The name of parent/guardian registering the student, must produce one piece of evidence from sources listed in Column A and one additional piece of evidence from Column B (Both sources of information must match) to complete the Broward County Public Schools’ student registration.
