Starting immediately, all parents registering their children must provide two examples of proof of residence so each Brevard Public School can verify the actual address at which the student is living.

Proofs of residence may include the following:

 • A current Homestead exemption card or purchase contract (with expected closing date within 90 days of the start of school) or warranty deed.

 • Lease/rental agreement (with parent’s name listed as the renter.

 • Current utility statement (within the last 30-45 days

 • Driver’s license – Florida law requires everyone to update address information on the driver’s license within 10 days of moving.

For families who may be sharing housing (students in transition), there is a new Shared Tenancy Affidavit that must be completed in order for the student to enroll/register in school.

For students who may be living temporarily with another family, the In Loco Parentis form has been updated to reflect a maximum of 30 days.

The form may not be used in lieu of the district’s Out of Area request process or to gain admittance into a school outside the student’s zoned school.
