FOCUS Parent Portal
Welcome to the FOCUS Parent Portal for the School District of Manatee County.
The FOCUS Parent Portal is a tool designed to enhance communication and involvement in your child's education while they are enrolled in a Manatee County public school. A FOCUS account will allow you to register your child for public school online and apply for School Choice during open enrollment session. FOCUS can help you monitor your child's progress in school by providing timely access to assignments and grades as they are entered by the teacher throughout the school year.
For the best user experience with the FOCUS Parent Portal, please use the Google Chrome browser.
For New Students that have never enrolled in an SDMC public school, including SDMC Traditional Schools, Charter Schools, Manatee Virtual, Home School, McKay School, Empowerment Scholarship School and Child Find (ESE Services). This Registration Checklist will help you gather documents necessary to scan. If you are experiencing issues with online registration, please contact the Office of Student Assignment.
