Digital Registration

Because of restrictions due to CoVID19, we are accepting digital pre-registrations for the coming school year (2020-2021). Follow the three steps below to start registration.

If you have questions about the process at any time, please email Be sure to include your phone number and times you can be contacted if you would like to speak with us on the phone.


Step 1: Are you eligible to register?

In Broward Schools, a student may be pre-registered for the next school year at their “home school”. This school depends on the student’s address. Please check on the district’s school locator to find your school:

If Tropical Elementary is not your home school, you may still register with us if you have a reassignment approval letter from the district’s School Choice office. Parents may apply for reassignment to schools where space exists during specified School Choice application windows. For additional information please go to

Otherwise, please email for any additional questions or concerns.
