Welcome to Focus Parent Portal
Registration is now open for all students.
Our school district is switching to a new student information platform called Focus (it is replacing Ascender), and because of that change all students – those returning and those new to ECISD – are required to create a new Parent Portal account and use that account to register your child(ren) for the coming school year.
We understand, for returning students, uploading the same documents you have previously is inconvenient; we believe this will be a much better online registration experience for you and it will not be necessary in the future. We used Focus on a small scale for prekindergarten registration, and it worked well.
All student registration will be done online through Focus, though our school staffs will be ready to help you if you run into any problems. Every school is scheduling a few drop-in days when they will have staff members ready to help parents get registered. These are optional. As a parent, if you are having trouble with online registration, you can visit any school on any day and ask for help.
All students – those returning and those new to ECISD – will need to upload the following documents in order to complete the registration process:
- Student’s birth certificate (Request a birth certificate HERE)
- Proof of residency (current utility bill, current lease agreement, or mortgage statement & it must be dated within the last 30 day) A drivers license is not accepted for proof of residency, only proof of identity
- Drivers license
- Immunization record
- Social security number (if student has one)
We have created this series of videos and printed explanations to walk you through the process.
