Thank you for your patience as we navigate COVID-19 and school closures. Your child's early education is important to us and we want to ensure a safe, reliable, and valid screening and/or evaluation for your child. To remain compliant with our COVID-19 procedures, we need to collect as much information from you now. It is very important that you follow the instructions below to ensure we have all the information needed PRIOR to your appointment. Otherwise it will need to be rescheduled.
Email the following documents and put your child’s name and birthday in the subject line of the email. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Use the following link to complete a questionnaire that will give us additional information on your child. This questionnaire will take approximately 12 minutes to complete.
Follow the instructions to create a Parent Portal FOCUS profile. Go to https://leon.focusschoolsoftware.com/focus/auth/. You MUST include an email address in the profile so we can send you secure documents about your child.
Once we receive receipt of the above information we will either text or call to confirm your appointment. We are scheduling/rescheduling appointments in the following order:
Pursuant to federal law, students may not be denied a public education. As such, Leon County Schools is committed to providing a world class education in a safe environment for all students--regardless of immigration status.
LCS administrators will continue to enforce Board Policy 5540 in relation to non-DCF law enforcement investigations involving students on campus. This policy requires parents’ consent in order to provide access to students unless there is a warrant or an exigent/emergency circumstance such as an investigation involving a missing child.
LCS counselors have been trained to provide support for students and families who may be impacted by changes to federal law. The safety and security of all our students will continue to be our top priority.
