    There are also written instructions available: Focus™ Parent Portal: Create a New Online Account.  Parents signing up for the first time will want to gather some necessary information (the list is also available on this page). 

    Parents will need to know:

    1.    A valid email address

    2.    Your child’s date of birth

    3.    Your child’s 6-digit ECSD student ID number

    4.    The last four digits of your child’s Social Security Number
