Student Enrollment (Kindergarten - Grade 12)

All new students (Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade) and those transferring within our district will need to visit our Central Registration office to enroll your child in school.  Our goal in having one location for student enrollment is to improve customer service by expediting the process, ensuring consistency across all 36 schools and making it more convenient for those with children in more than one school. It is a requirement that the parent go to Central Registration in order to complete the registration process, even if you have completed the online application.

Pre-K registration for the 2023 - 2024 school year will begin on March 6th and run through March 31st.
